On the drive back to London, England from Amsterdam, I stopped in Bruges, Belgium for a quick lunch stop. Some stops are shorter than others. This was one of those occasions. I couldn’t go to Europe and not stop over in Belgium for the world’s finest chocolate and waffles. I made the best of my limited time there. When I landed in Bruges, I was told that I couldn’t leave Belgium without enjoying my heart’s desire of hot chips, chocolate, and waffles. I did just that. I was nearly ready to burst.
During my time in Bruges I made it my mission to sample my way around the city, while taking some photos along the way of my busy-bee visit of the beautiful city. Bruges is a stunning city with stone covered churches and cobble stone streets, and a river flowing through; the colourful flower pots and window boxes brightened the city of the grey rainy day. The city center market was busy with locals and tourists purchasing local fares. The horse and carriages trotting alongside pedestrians made the city feel old and charming.
It’s amazing how I was able to get a feel of Bruges with the limited time I had there. First impressions truly are the most powerful. My quick stop in Bruges was more than enough for me to know that I love Belgium. Bruges is more than just mere chips, chocolate, and waffles. I can only dream about exploring more in the future.
