Off to Belgium again

More beautiful buildings, cobbled streets and a very nice B&B right in the heart of this Medieval City. Bruges Belgium  the capital of West Flanders in northwest Belgium.   In the city center’s Burg square, the 14th-century Stadhuis (City Hall) has an ornate carved ceiling. Nearby, Markt square features a 13th-century belfry with a 47-bell carillon and 83m tower with panoramic views.

The two photos above are of The Markt of Bruges. A huge square with amazing buildings all around and fun restaurants were you were able to eat on the patio where the people watching was lots of fun.

The most important of Bruges’ towers stands 83 metres tall. The Belfry Tower has 47 melodious bells that on some evenings they have a concert, we missed it as they were doing repair work on the bells the days we were there, however I did climb the 366 steps to enjoy the views from above!

I had to buy some clothing as the weather just kept getting colder and colder!  New sweatshirt, scarf, mittens and hat.  I wore these until we got to Normandy!

We took another bike ride excursion to Damme Belgium along a canal and then of course another pub with another beer!  It was a short ride and our guide, Flavia was from Argentina with a masters degree in tourism who in 2018 was traveling in Europe and landed upon Bruges and stayed.  It was a great afternoon

Bruges was a tourist town but with so much to experience you didn’t ever feel as though it was just for the tourist.  We tried Mussels for the first time and truly enjoyed them.  Bruges is not cheap but so beautiful, and they have chocolatiers everywhere!
