Beautiful Bruges

The final day of last cruise, we stopped in Zeebrugge, Belgium. A few friends and I took a tram and then a train into Bruges, a lovely town full of beautiful old buildings, canals, and lots of beer and chocolate!

Welcome to Belgium!

Our first stop, after wandering around for about half an hour, was for lunch at a small pub. As we were sitting on the covered patio, the sun broke through the clouds, and the temperature warmed up.

Such a nice town!

After lunch, we walked to the Beer Wall, a pub serving 6 beers on tap and over 100 kinds of bottled beer. Each beer had a signature glass. I tried two, one hibiscus beer, and one cherry, and enjoyed both! We grabbed a spot at an outdoor table overlooking a canal. I happily could’ve sat there all day!

Very true words...

We left extra time to walk back to the train station, so we could see some more of the city. I never made it into the main square, but was impressed by everything else I saw. I would love to go back for a weekend trip. Chocolate, beer, and sunshine… What more could you want?!

Can't wait to come back

  1. Do you remember my friend Keri from UVA? She and her husband (Ben) lived in Bruges for 2 years while he was getting his PhD from a Beligian university! Looks like a lovely town!
