In Bruges

Of all the places I have been, Bruges is still one of my favorites. This small medieval city is simply gorgeous. Jaap and I traveled there after Christmas 2010. It was nice to return and see the city with my friends who also appreciate good beer and chocolate! Go check out The Chocolate Line. It was recommended to us by a local. We were literally speechless.
We toured the De Halve Maan Brewery, sampled some brew, and afterwards walked through the Markt. The weather was freezing for August, but  we didn't care. We were so happy for all of us to be together. It was the perfect day.

I'm glad we got to do some new things that Jaap and I missed our first time Bruges. We enjoyed a nice boat cruise to see Bruges by boat all while trying to understand the commentary by the driver. Apparently he was speaking in English, but we couldn't make out anything. Still fun though.
And no trip to Bruges would be complete without some mussels. Lekker!!!!
