Girls Trip - Day 9, Belgium

October 16, 2014  •  1 Comment

Today we took the train to Brussels, Belgium and then to Bruges, What a fantastic and "oozing with cuteness" city to quote Nicole. Belgium is famous for Waffles, Chocolate, Beer and Belgium Fries.  Of course that meant we had to try all.  Or a least Shane got all of them checked off.  The rest of us got three of the four.  We started the morning in Bruges with waffles and coffee.  Belgium Waffles also come in two varieties.  Regular whice is taller and sugar which has pearl sugar in them.  Our waffle shop owners have had the shop for 20 years.  They were very nice and in fact Shane even talked to them about doing a Bruges - Wenatchee house swap.  After our waffles we roamed the streets of the city.  Shane and Danielle went through the Bruges History Museum.  While they did this Nicolie and I took a carriage ride.  Our driver Siel was full of information about the city and the buildings. His family had been there said the 1300's and in fact his family name was carved on the main squares statue.

One day in Bruges was not enough with all the canals and streets to explore. Every corner we came around had another fantastic view. I have put Bruges on my must go back to list.

It was a long day which is why this post is late but the long day was totally worth it.

Day nine - picturesque
