In Bruges

After a wonderful getaway to Zeeland in the Netherlands we drove further south to discover Belgium’s medieval beauty Bruges. To quote Ray in the great film In Bruges:

Maybe that’s what hell is: the entire rest of eternity spent in fucking Bruges.

Let me tell you: It’s not all that bad. Not at all. Even though the whole town seems a little dozy with some restaurants and shops closed on Tuesdays and quiet streets in the morning. However, this dreaminess also makes Bruges a very special place. Time seems to stand still here and there. In the very best meaning.

Our accommodation was Hotel Bla Bla very close to the historic centre.

Bruges is full of those beautiful orange tile roofs, which we looked out to from our hotel room.

Breakfast was served at Sanseveria, a charming bagel café. French music from the 1920s and tasty ingredients had us strenghtened for another day with chilly autumn weather.

And chocolate also played its part in warming us.

We got a little touristy when climbing up Belfort and enjoyed a lovely view over Bruges.

And afterwards continued our strolls with fresh Belgian waffles being a perfect finish of this one-day-citytrip.
