Weekend Trip to Bruges

Isn't it amazing what a short weekend trip away can do to recharge your batteries? As mentioned on Friday, we went to Belgium to visit some close friends of ours. They live in beautiful Ghent.

On Saturday we drove over to Bruges, which is less than an hour from Ghent. It's a place I've been wanting to see for a long time. Bruges is buzzing with tourists but that's no surprise as most of the city centers spectacular medieval architecture is still intact. Bruges is often referred to as the Venice of the North - mainly for the many bridges and canals but perhaps also because it feels like a giant open air museum.

We had 4 kids in tow and lots to catch up on so although I was able to soak up the atmosphere of the place I will definitely want to visit again at some point. Maybe for a romantic escape with my husband.

Tschüss...

Hi Nina, was für wunderschöne Fotos von dir und die Stadt strahlt wirklich was Besonderes aus. Ich habe für meine nächsten City-Trips Brüssel und Antwerpen auf meiner Liste. Vielleicht sollte ich Brügge vorziehen ;-)
Wünsche dir auch ein schönes Osterfest!
