Bruges, known as the Venice of the north, was once a significant port and economic center and is filled with gorgeous medieval architecture. The trip included a boat tour along the city’s canals, which was a great way to view the city's beautiful buildings away from the crowds of tourists that clog its streets.
After the boat tour, we wandered, enjoying the sites, as well as some wonderful food. Glenn enjoyed mussels and beer, while I was on a quest for chocolate (granted, not much of a challenge in a city filled with some of the world's best chocolatiers) and waffles.
It was a wonderful day, in a wonderful city.
