Once upon a time.....

Our trip to Belgium was a bit like
being in a fairy tale

As you enter the historic city of Brugge
you are swept back to the

Golden age (12th to 15th century)


This romantic city of winding
canals dotted with swans,
gilded architecture, great beer,
beautiful lace, and delicious chocolate 
is a dream come true

 Great Beer
 Beautiful Lace

Delicious chocolate
 Our guide gave us the history of this ancient
city as we slowly toured the canals 
in our water taxis

He told us this fellow was
in this window everyday watching 
the boats pass by

  but not always awake

 and if all this beauty wasn't enough
our apartment at the House of Season's 
was equally as gorgeous!

One evening after dinner
we found a group of Italian school girls
singing in the square. It was as if
heaven had touched earth

The sound was incredible

A moment I will never forget

 Brugge at night is a fantasy land

Performers in the square

Thank you to my wonderful
English family for taking us
on this awesome trip

Every Little Birdie says

Goodbye beautiful Brugge

Next post.......France!

  1. Hi Marsha, I luckly also went last month in enchanted Bruges! I saw that sweet dog on window but my pic wasn't great. It's a really dream place! I'd like you to see my post about Bruges http://lovecraft2012.blogspot.pt/2014/10/bruges-belgica-bruges-belgium.html
    We both have a similar pic on the canal. Thanks for sharing!
    Hope you have a wonderful day!
