Fabulous food, great company, historic architechture, incredible shop displays, cute market stalls and a general Christmassy feel - Bruges did not disappoint. I cannot give it justice in words, but perhaps the photos can...
... I will let them speak for themselves.
Needless to say, the £40 I spent to get there (I know, amazing, right?!) was worth every penny just for the discovery of Dille & Kamille, which is now my new favourite shop in the entire world (literally!) Sadly it cannot be found in the UK, but if I ever find myself in Belgium or Holland again, I will be looking them up. It was the most gorgeous shop I have ever been into, and I literally could have bought out their entire stock!
If you ever get the chance to visit this gorgeous city during the festive period, grab it with both hands... it truly was a fantastic day!
|Horse-drawn carriages everywhere!|
|On the river cruise|
|Yup - those tools are made of chocolate!|
|Did you know there were this many kinds of marzipan?!|
|No-one does chocolate shops like the Belgians!|
|Gorgeous step gables...|
|Belgian Waffles. Enough said.|
|My new favourite shop...|
|Goodbye gorgeous Bruges... I hope I'll be back one day!|
Now on with another busy week!
