A few more pics of Bruges…

Market Square - lots of people around

The historic centre of Bruges is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The historic area was very interesting. I could have easily stayed overnight and explored the area another entire day. There was so much to see!! Oh…and I forgot to mention the chocolate is superb. It is Belgium…chocolates and beer…they are known for both!!! ; )

Day trip to Belgium

Boats on the canal in Bruges, Belgium

I decided to take a day trip to Belgium! I took a train from Paris and then a bus to reach my final destination. I went to a place called Bruges. It is the capital and largest city in the province of West Flanders in the Flemish region of Belgium. It is located in the Northwest part of the country and about one hour from Brussels. The population is around 120,000 in Bruges but with the surrounding towns included the population of the area jumps to around 256,000. It is sometimes referred to as the “Venice of the North” because of the famous canals that are located in the city.  It was certainly worth the visit!!!
