Finally, here is the other half of my Belgium travel diary. Brugge was stunning and I thought that it definitely deserved to have its own separate post. This is the link of the first half if you haven’t seen it yet – DeeWanderlust: Brussels, Belgium
Honestly, Brugge wasn’t part of my initial itinerary when going to Belgium but since we were staying longer than planned and with peoples’ suggestions we took a day trip to Brugge. I’m so happy that we did as the city was absolutely stunning.
We took the train from Gare du Midi station and bought our tickets there on the day. Ghent was part of the ticket, but we decided to skip it and focus on exploring Brugge.
Brugge is a beautiful city and I am glad that I got to explore this fairytale medieval town.
Below is Bruges’ Town Hall ‘Stadhuis’, which is one of the oldest building in Belgium. The amazing Gothic architecture was constructed between 1376 and 1420. It’s insane to think that it is from here that the city has been governed for more than 600 years!
Lunch with a view – as you can see I enjoyed having beer, mussels and fries (and of course I also had waffles for dessert!)
I seriously loved the vibe in this place. The cobbled streets, horse carriages and medieval canals reminded me of a place that we visited in the Philippines called Vigan.
Don’t you just love these colourful buildings in Markt Square? So pretty!
Finally, I had to have my moment of overlooking the canal. Touring around can get too much sometimes, most especially when it’s summer time. This is why ever time I go on a trip I make sure that I stop for a moment and take the time to enjoy the scenery. Brugge was so tranquil and peaceful and this was definitely a good trip for me.
Let me know on the comments down below if you have been to Brugge or Belgium in general and what you loved about the city the most?
As for me I really enjoyed my trip because the places were full of life. It was buzzing with people, music and of course delicious food! I also admire the architecture and historical buildings that Belgium had to offer.
