In Bruges (and Brussels)

Posted 4 January 2013

During our time in Belgium we stayed in Bruges, a super cute town with quaint brick buildings and cobblestone laneways. There was something about the slower pace of life and quiet one way streets that I couldn’t help but love. We spent our days wandering alongside the half-frozen canals, ordering beers from pubs over two hundred years old and indulging in delicious frites topped with mayonnaise.

We took a day trip to Brussels, and I have to say, I was quite taken with the city. Impressive architecture in every direction, metropolitan but not over-run with people. There was also an abundance of chocolate-coated waffles, carefully curated boutiques and beautiful buildings. If you get a chance, Belgium really is worth a visit.

I want to feel that sunshine on my skin. The character of the buildings really do it for me. Thanks for sharing these - I'm going to start a Belgium savings jar!

Bruges looks incredible! My Mum just got back from there and loved it too. Looks like you had lovely sunny weather too. Loving all your travel pics, although pretty jealous too...

What a gorgeous place! These photos are stunning. I love the light leaking past the buildings. That's so neat you got to stay in a place like this! I can't wait until I can travel again. Right now it's just working to save up for that next big trip : )
