    interesting details

    s simple house... which i found so captivating

    Favorite thing: Brugge is not only about architecture - be it gothic or medieval - or about canals. For me it's more about charming details: many houses have little decorations, or little niches with statues or votive images inside them.

    Fondest memory: this house, which i doubt i'll ever find out what it is... th little niche with a madonna shows how religious people used to be. it's a simple red bricks house - but tells a lot about the city's past

    Morning Pastry

    Off to the bakery

    Favorite thing: The People! No matter were you were from or what language you spoke, they recieved us with open arms and were very gracious hosts. From the shop owners to the locals.. they are just great warm people.

    Fondest memory: Rising early in the morning, strolling down to a local pastry shop and enjoying a lazy moment sampling their sweets and drinking a cup of fresh brewed coffee while watching the locals head to work and opening their shops for the day.

    Favorite thing: Take a walk with the guide booklet from the Tourist Information (60 cents). Go early and at your own pace, perhaps stopping for a boat trip at the Dijver and even the brewery tour at the Straffe Hendrick (Waalplein).

    Fondest memory: This is just a beautiful place to be. I especially miss the beer and on our return have to endure our British lager which is just about good enough for cooking.

    Favorite thing: Just walking around brugge it an experience, every time you walk down a street, you find another building of beauty and something that moves you, the riverside walk is wonderful although the cobbled streets did get to my feet after a while :-)

    Favorite thing: These houses, located on the edge of the St John’s Hospital estate, contain a wide variety of material witnesses to Bruges’ past discovered during excavations. They include pottery, glass, leather, metal, wood and stone items, and a series of murals. Together, the exhibits recall the city’s history from the Stone Age to the Middle Ages and beyond.
