I had never heard of Bruges, in Belgium until I watched the movie In Bruges a couple of years ago. All I could remember was the clock tower, the square, and the gory ending.
We took a day trip to Bruges from London with East London Travel. I didn’t realise quite how far away it was – almost 5 hours travel time in each direction.
I also never knew that you couldn’t drive through the Euro Tunnel – your vehicle is loaded onto a train which travels through it! Mind = blown.
I had the local special – mussels and chips for lunch, along with a local beer. Then I went mad buying chocolates and spent my 30 euro budget pretty quickly!
Bruges brings to mind a fairytale city. It is compact and easy to explore in a day however I wouldn’t necessarily recommend doing this day trip to Bruges though as the travel was a tad tedious. I look forward to going back to Belgium and exploring Brussels and Antwerp.
