Have you ever heard of Bruges? Well I didn’t know this romantic, beautiful and picturesque city even existed.
My Valentine surprised me with this trip and even when we arrived to Brussels airport I had no clue, where this journey would lead us to.
Bruges is about 1hour by train from Brussels and perfect for a weekend getaway or even a little longer. Well he decided to take me there for 4 days which was absolutely perfect.
