And expect to find Colin Farrell!
Naomi wanted to experience as much of Europe as she could in 3 weeks, so me, being ever so obliging gave her a list of places that are pretty great. So, 3 days into her Eurotrip, we ended up in Bruges.
Now for those who are unfamiliar with where the hell Bruges is (because you didn't see *that* movie) – it's the capital of West Flanders in the northwest of Belgium. It's famous for several things, more recently *that* movie, but also as a Unesco World heritage site. When you enter the city, it really is a fookin' fairytale. (With apologies to Ralph Fiennes).
We booked a hotel that I'd been to before – so I knew it was close to the city centre and all the attractions. From there it was just going around the city, seeing all that was there, and of course, perhaps a brush with Colin Farrell …
We certainly did the cliche's … a carriage ride, the canal boat tour, and wandered the city for hours, before making our way to one of the many restaurants on the m arket square. We'd been warned that most places there ripped you off, but in all honesty, in a tourist town, all places ripped you off. With an abundance of moules, frites and biertjes around us, we settled on a small restaurant offering a 3 course meal for 20 euros … and it was good!
So, now the photos …
Our wheels in Bruges!

OMG! It's the most photographed dog in Bruges!
