Given that this was a quick holiday and with only half of day left to spend, we decided to take a boat ride down the famous Bruges canals. It was really easy to find where to board from and the ride it self took about half an hour. We got a very cool guide who, I swear, spoke so many languages and even knew a bit of Croatian. He was chatting away on English, German, French and Spanish with ease. He was really funny and made us feel so welcome in his beautiful town. He show us some beautiful buildings on the way while talking about the town history. I tried to take a few snaps but it was hard as the boat was quite cramped. Most of these were taken while walking back to our hotel.
I loved our time in Bruges. People are nice and chatty, the food is great and there is plenty to do & see. It breathes history every corner and coming from a small medieval town myself I felt like being at home. Minus the sea. 🙂
Whilst on the way back to our hotel we stumble upon a small antique market. I bought this old rusty key that I use as a pendant for one of my necklaces.
So…would I recommend a visit to Bruges? Yes, a 100% I would. It is close enough to England/France and depending from where you coming from don’t give it a miss. It is a precious gem. Sometimes all you need is a day or two to charge your batteries and move on with your life.
