Bruges - A photo diary

Like I mentioned in my last post, I had such an amazing few days in Bruges. It's somewhere that has been on my list for years and it lived up to all expectations. It was amazing to have 4 days where we didn't really have any strict schedules to stick to other than making sure we made the train home! Back in Feburary Berlin was fantastic but so exhausting as we had every minute of the day to fit something in. I'd wholly recommend taking 4 days for a city break rather than three if you can. That extra day really does make all the difference in helping you relax.

The photos look a little gloomy but that's just how I like them. It seems a lot more Christmassy to me! Bruges is such a pretty city full of winding roads and you really can get lost staring in awe at all the stunning buildings. There's just something about the red roofs eh?! The Christmas tree in the last picture stole my heart and I made sure we did a detour everyday just so I could stare at it. It's gorgeous don't you think?

I was a little disappointed with the Christmas market - try Antwerp as that was amazing but more on that in a few days. It just wasn't very spectacular but maybe I'd built it up too much in my head. But the rest of the city really impressed me with their decorations - they were everywhere you looked! I'm feeling very festive now. Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner?

Have you ever been to Bruges?
