A Trip to Bruges, Belgium

This Memorial Day weekend we took an overnight trip to Brugge, Belgium (It’s spelled Bruge, Bruges, and/or Brugge). The trip’s total distance from our home is approximately 250 miles. However, it took us a little while longer because we took the Chunnel (English Channel Tunnel) to Belgium and the Ferry back to England. The town is very historic with historic architecture all around and a river flowing through the city. It always surprises me to walk around these villages that are hundreds of years old. Several buildings were originally built during the 12th century. However, in the midst of all this history are Footlocker, H&M, and other modern shopping stores.j

Belgium is famous for waffles and chocolate. During our time in Brugge, we took advantage of both. We sample various types of chocolate and we had waffles topped with Carmel sauce, strawberries, whipped cream and other delectable toppings. We were there for less than 24 hours.  Nevertheless , we had a good time.
