Since returning from Scotland after Christmas, we have not been up to much at all. At the end of January we go on our first trip of year to Barcelona and we will see FC Barcelona play again. So for now we will return to October and our week in Belgium.
We stayed in Brugge for most of our time in Belgium but did day trips to other cities. The city of Brugge is absolutely beautiful and I have wanted to visit here for a long time. It is quite a small city and very easy to navigate on foot and as there is a river, boat trip is warranted too.
Brugge is Belgium`s best preserved medieval town and all the architectural buildings are just down right amazing. From museums, basilicas, churches, Belfry, bridges and many other building there is a lot to take in. I am sure the view from the top of the Belfry would be amazing but we didn`t fancy climbing all the steps.
The movie In Bruges can give you a good idea of how the city looks like and it is a good movie too! We found a number of good restaurants and of course we ate our fair share of waffles too and we tried lots of Belgium beer (even me who isn`t that keen on beer).
Out of all the cities we visited in Belgium, plus we also visited Rotterdam in The Netherlands, for me the best was Brugge.
