Bruges, what can be the be the best way to describe it, it's like you walked into a time-period where everything was beautiful and everyone was nice. I felt like I was in a musical and the street would at any moment break into a full-fledged song and dance sequence. We took a train from Luxembourg to Bruges which is about a five hours train journey, I would not know the exact time since the day we traveled as luck would have it there were some rail works on the tracks that were taking place and it took us a lot longer to reach than it usually should.
We stayed at the IBIS Hotels, the reason being (a) it is extremely well located; and (b) it was considered reasonable as Bruges can be a bit on the expensive side (and also the fact we mostly make last minutes and never manage to get our bookings on time). The best part about Luxembourg is you can actually make such last minute plans and get away with it, but more on that later. I had a few things in mind when I reached there and was told off by Mr. H. immediately. According to him, Bruges was about exploring without an agenda and so that is exactly what we did. Ironically then I decided to make this blog a "Things You Must Do in Bruges-Version Me":
Take a Buggy Tour: This is an absolute must, Bruges history is extremely rich and the entire town has been preserved so as to maintain that rich history and culture. These buggy rides have been fashioned as if they were from the same era that their stories started from and is an experience in itself. Also, you will get to go around and explore the city and then you can later come back and go to places where you want to explore further or just go to a bar and grab a beer even!! ;-) Take a walk around: I know you will say you already saw everything on the buggy tour. But trust me you did not. You have to walk this city to take in the essence of the city. The beautiful canals surrounded by architecture that is a vision in itself. Do it and you will not regret, there are so many treasures to be found in this city you will be amazed.
