Bruges

Bruges is a little city about an hour outside of Brussels.After I ran out of things to do in Brussels, I took the tip from a friendly group of girls my age in my hostel and went to Bruges for a day. I boarded an early train and spent about 6 hours in the lovely little town. Enjoy the photos!

Bruges is sometimes referred to as a “Venice of the North.”

On the outskirts of the town is a small beguinage that still houses nuns.

I decided to climb to the top of the Belfry to get a better view. My mom encouraged me to check it off my list as she had when she was in Bruges.
