(BRUGES - BRUGGE - BRÜGGE)

No matter how you spell it - French, Dutch, or German (although since the main language here is Dutch, I'll stick to that form) - the town of Brugge is amazing! The entire city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and with good reason. Brugge has been aptly nicknamed "Venice of the North" (you'll see why from the photos) - everywhere you look is a scene crying out for a picture postcard shot. Even in late Autumn there are a surprising number of tourists wandering around town, taking in the sights (like yours truly!). So much to see, so many historic and beautiful buildings... I could go on and on. And everyone I've run across has been friendly, helpful, kind, and patient - lovely townsfolk. Add in the over 400 varieties of beer, the wonderful Belgian chocolate shops that abound, and the general magic of the place - Brugge is a definite "must-see" on anyone's itinerary. There will be quite a few pictures posted for this, my last stop on the Continent, so I hope you enjoy looking at them!
Now... back to Merry Old England!
