From Brussels, we went on a little day trip to Bruges. By slower train it takes about an hour and a half, and with the fast train about an hour. It’s a little tiny town that makes you feel like you are in a fairy tale. It was quite interesting because swans seemed like the ‘thing’ of the town, it was so cute.
I mean, come on, these colourful buildings in the city centre would be the perfect setting for Pinocchio!
It was late November but they already had their Christmas market set up with an outdoor ice rink. Nonetheless people did complain about the condition of the ice and I could see that the ice was melting 😦
We stayed in Bruges for about 9 hours and that was more than enough time to see everything. They also had some sort of Lord of the rings-themed ice sculpture display right by the train station, but we didn’t really feel like paying almost 15 euros for them so we skipped that. I really love how in Europe it’s so easy to take these little trips-within-a-trip ❤
