For my birthday the lovely boyfriend gave me a trip to Brugge (with him as company/chauffeur/carrier-of-my-stuff/other). And it was great!
Yay! Selfie time! As #selfie was the word of 2013 we’ll now go for ‘zelfportret’.. Anyway. Boyfriend was a super gent and carried my camera around for me so I could go GIMME GIMME every time I saw something. Or wanted a zelfportret ;)
In the ‘new’ family car hih ;)
Our hotel was a little outside Brugge (or a lot as we got lost hah). As you can see we scored blue skies on the first day!
He only had one bag. I manage to overpack anytime, anyplace.. So this is my bag ;) Also the hotelroom! It was very nice and roomy and we could run around it! The bathroom was very pretty too. We liked the tiling (is that a weird thing to like..?)
We decided to head into Brugge straight away to find something to eat. We walked out of the parking and found this trail of hearts leading us into the center. How cool :)
So this is the first building we saw. Also, tons of ppl on segways. Not sure how that works. They looked very happy about it ;)
I need to buy books. Always. Everywhere. I’m still getting through the J.K. Rowling one as we speak. It’s somehow kinda hard to get through but I want to finish it..
Breakfast in the hotel was AMAZING. Really. EAT ALL THE FOODS. I combined chocolaty goodness with eh, mushrooms. Cause I can.
Second day in Brugge. Apparently it was ‘solden’ and the little city was PACKED with people. Police to guide all this madness and all.. So enjoy this tranquil photo of water instead ;)
Yay zelfportret ;) My mother would love these kind of stores and somehow that makes me go into them as well. It was supersmall and ther owner was somewhere else and just left it open as is. So amazing :)
Wow. Just. The entire city feels like it just TOO pretty. Everything. So. Much. PRETTY!
Also all the store fronts were so great! It was superbusy in each and every one of them so we didn’t go into this particular one but I snapped a lot of photos anyway =)
There was a beautiful church we visited which had this wall with plaques on it. Right across the Maria Altar. I’ve never seen that in any church before and think it’s very special. It’s people thanking them for their prayers I think!
These sheep. all the cute.
so this was just a ‘side’ street. You know. NOthing big or fancy in it. And it looks LIKE THIS.
We found a little store called ‘cat and dog shop’ and it sells clothing for dogs. Oddly they didn’t have anything in Carlos size ;)
Hungry campers we were and we wanted a real belgian waffle. Our hope were high cause look at this amazing hot chocolate set..!
The waffle arrived, with hot chocolate sauce.. and it was horrid. Im afraid I don’t remember the name of this restaurant but NEVER get your waffle anywhere else than a waffle stand. We could throw this through a window and then build a house with it..
We’re very talented at finding starbucks anywhere. We just followed the trail of hipster girls (really we actually did that) and coffee presented itself to us.
YAY coffee! And my love <3
After the very busy solden days i Brugge we decided to expore elsewhere. We had dinner in Knokke last evening and decided to want to see the beach with daylight.
We drove to Oostende which was great! And SO COLD!
Pretty sand is pretty!
Cold boyfriend is cold hih.
I’m such a badass and not cold at all. Clearly.
Also we present worlds ugliest flat at the beach. WHUT it up with this? How amazing to live in it though. If you drop something out of it it might just be ok landing in the sand and all..
We had a great time and love the city and the beach! We didn’t love the solden so much and if you ever go to Brugge make sure it’s not the first weekend of solden.. also make sure you have cash on you cause paying with pin is a whole different ballgame in Belgium.
Thank you so much boyfriend for this awesome gift :) I love you! :)
