Bruges

As I told you in my last post this weekend my husband treated me to a couple of days in Brugge (Bruges in English), a little town in Belgium that still looks the same as how it looked in the Middle Ages. There live only 20.000 people, an amount that's exceeded on any given day by masses and masses of tourists. Nonetheless it's a beautiful, beautiful little town and I loved walking around in it. Here are some pictures that I made. My camera is broken so all pictures are made with my iPod and are a bit dark, but I guess they are clear enough to get an idea of what the town looks like.

  1. You should try to get to Bruges in the Spring, when the cherry blossom, and tulips are out. Makes even these pics look out of this world. So nice to be reminded of a lovely trip I took many years ago. Comforting that the place doesn't change - even now!

    1. We had lovely weather this weekend, so my pictures are much darker than the weather actually was :-) . Next time I go to Bruges, I hope my camera will be fixed (or even better: I hope to have a new one!). But now that I've seen Bruges, I think I will try Ghent next time I'm in Belgium.

  7. I visited Bruges 3 years ago when I traveled with my hubby to Belgium. What an amazing place. Even just traveling around Belgium I was struck with how old many of the building are. They were built and still stand, even before America was discovered :-)
