Oh, wow. Bruges is one the prettiest places I've ever seen. Our friends Sabrina and Simo are lucky enough to live practically in the very center of this living fairytale of a town, and along with our friend Sabine, Elger and I took a quick road trip through intermittent downpours and seeing downpours in the distance to Belgium to wander these streets with hundreds of tourists and drink powerful delicious beers. Brugges has been a tourist destination since the late 1800s and the horse-drawn carriages on the cobblestones do a good job of convincing visitors of having time traveled. Along with this status comes gross postcards and tourist traps, but it's so beautiful that you can't help but just marvel.
