After my parents came to stay with Michiel and I in Eindhoven, I went with them to Bruges for the weekend. After a lengthy and complicated train ride, we arrived at the little 17th century Flemish house they rented near the centre of town. It was so cute and soooo old. Everything squeaked and creaked and you could just feel the history of the place — from the exposed wooden beams in the ceiling to the creepy basement below.
On the first day, my parents rented bikes to go check out a nearby town called Damme, and I went on a walking tour of the city. We all really enjoyed Bruges (and its chocolate & croissants!). The city is so medieval and all the buildings & bridges are incredible and filled with history. The main square is gorgeous, with Belfry Tower on one side and a bunch of colourful shops and cafes on the other.
Here are a few pictures of our time in Bruges! (Part II coming soon)
Second half of my Bruges pictures coming up next time :)
