Winding canals similar to Venice, stone house that look like they’re made of gingerbread, and some of the best beer and chocolate in all of Europe, we couldn’t disagree more with Colin Farrell’s description of Bruges in the movie In Bruges (click here to see quote).
Our favorite memories were jogging through this canal filled town early on our second morning, buying a few Havana cigar chocolates (technically illegal but I don’t think customs will mind), touring a Belgium brewery, and munching on some Flemish Fries (some argue fries were invented here).
Oh, and we have to make sure to mention that we caught a fantastic sunset while walking through the canals. It was bitterly cold but we hung out so we could take in the beauty. We then of course ran into the nearest store, which happened to be a chocolateria, and enjoyed some free samples while we warmed up.
