Although this is my first time to Brugge (Bruges) I am no stranger to this city. My mother was married to a man from Brugge for many years so I got to know it through him and the many beers my mom enjoyed from the area.

They divorced before I ever had a chance to visit and it just seemed weird to go after that. I decided since I was “in the area” that it was time to visit.

It is a very pretty town but very busy with day trippers (like me).

I very much preferred my quieter Gent as my base for my couple days in Belgium.

I finally tried one of those waffle things.

This marzipan also caught my eye so I picked a little bag.
