Photo Diary: Bruges


Looking for a storybook European town? Well, look no further than lovely little Bruges.

As part of a recent trip to Belgium (photos here), I spent two days strolling / boating around Bruges. It’s the capital of West Flanders (who knew!?) and a 1.5 hour train ride from Brussels. Horse-drawn carriages, cobbled streets and medieval waterways make Bruges one of the most charming cities in Europe. I highly recommend adding it to your list of must-visits!
