But there is one reason to go here - the CHOCOLATES ARE UNBELIEVABLE. I'm not even a big chocolate fan - I can take it or leave it. And I've had Lindt chocolates, Kinder - many of the European brands. I brought a couple of boxes home for my parents (they're about 18 Euro for a good sized box with 3 layers, or 12 Euro for a small one).
Oh yes, back to Brugge.. beautiful waterways, quaint architecture, everyone on bikes, lots of GORGEOUS, STRONG horses proudly pulling carriages. More tourists than citizens though. But nobody says hello or smiles like in Paris.
Part of the fun of seeing old photos and digging through your harddrives (or shoeboxes, I suppose) is the treasure trove of things that you find. I was a total photo policewoman when we went to Paris, downloading everyone's photos onto my HD. I just bought a digital photo frame and was loading my favorite photos onto the ginormous 16GB memory card I bought for it and look at what I happened upon.. a video Ragnar had taken in Brugges. It doesn't show any of the city, but it does show a snippet of what a silly group we were, what great fun we had. And as you can see as I stick my head into the bag of cookies.. what delicious food this part of the world provides us all =)
I laughed so hard my throat hurts! Ah the memories.. particularly when you're traveling with Travbuddies!
