Frites🍟⁣ ⁣ ⁣ French fries, or ‘frites’, are a local favorite and a food staple in Bruges and the rest of Belgium. The Belgian way is to eat your Frites drizzled in Mayonnaise! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Don’t knock it till you try it, the combo is actually delish! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Head to one of the two green carts in the Markt Square to get your fix. If you want to take it a step further you can even visit the Frietmuseum!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📍Bruges, Belgium⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #bruges #brugge #belgium #brussels #travel #timetravel #fairytale #travelrhroughtime #charming #littlecity #horses #cobblestone #bridges #takemeback #takemeaway # travelwithme #seetheworld #traveltheglobe #culture #newworld #travelguide #visitbelgium #experience #toptravellist #2020 #besttravel #journey #traveler #travelphotography #travelpics

Another beautiful view in Bruges.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ When you plan your trip to Bruges, don’t forget to leave sometime for nature. When you step away from the town square and cool beer bars, it has some of the most beautiful nature spots. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ The moss covered trees and small waterways feel so untouched, in a way that will make you feel like you are the only one to ever discover each spot. 💚⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📍Bruges, Belgium⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #bruges #brugge #belgium #brussels #Bruxelles #travel #timetravel #fairytale #travelrhroughtime #charming #littlecity #smalltowngirl #smalltown #city #bigcity #citygirl #takemeback #seetheworld #traveltheglobe #culture #newworld #travelguide #experience #toptravellist #2020 #besttravel #journey #traveler #travelphotography #travelpics⁣

The OLDEST Windmill in Bruges!!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Sint-Janshuismill windmill was built in 1770. It still grinds flour to this day, and it’s the only windmill in Bruges that is open to the public with a museum inside. It’s also the only mill in Bruges standing on its original position.💙⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📍Bruges, Belgium⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #bruges #brugge #belgium #brussels #Bruxelles #travel #timetravel #original #travelrhroughtime #charming #littlecity #smalltowngirl #smalltown #city #bigcity #citygirl #takemeback #seetheworld #traveltheglobe #culture #newworld #travelguide #experience #toptravellist #2020 #besttravel #windmils #traveler #travelphotography #travelpics

When you travel, do you prefer Small Town Vibes or Big City Exploring ?⁣ ⁣ ⁣ For me... I honestly go back and forth!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I am from a small beach town, so when we first moved to London, the Big City Trips had so much to offer that I was all in! Experiencing new cultures in a big city is like ripping off the swimmies and diving headfirst into the deep end. The excitement is overwhelming in the best way possible. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Now that we have been traveling around Europe for the past 3 years, I am finding such an appeal and pull back to those small town vibes. The coziness of a small town Airbnb host, sharing with you her family’s history in the town, becoming so much more meaningful than staying up late with the city lights.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Don’t get me wrong, I still want to see and experience everything I can. But for me right now... small town wins! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ What do you look for in travel experiences, Small Town or Big City?⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📍Bruges (small town😍), Belgium⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #bruges #brugge #belgium #brussels #Bruxelles #travel #timetravel #fairytale #travelrhroughtime #charming #littlecity #smalltowngirl #smalltown #city #bigcity #citygirl #takemeback #seetheworld #traveltheglobe #culture #newworld #travelguide #experience #toptravellist #2020 #besttravel #journey #traveler #travelphotography #travelpics

Hallo hoe gaat het? Translation: Hello, how are you?⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ The official language of Bruges is Flemish Dutch.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ While the locals understand French, they are not a huge fan of tourists who assume their preferred language is French. The people of Bruges are very friendly and open to speaking English, but a little effort to great people in Dutch will go a long way😉⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📍Bruges, Belgium⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #bruges #brugge #belgium #dutch #Flemish #travel #timetravel #fairytale #Respect #tourist #littlecity #horses #cobblestone #bridges #takemeback #takemeaway #travelwithme #seetheworld #traveltheglobe #culture #travelguide #visitbelgium #experience #toptravellist #2020 #besttravel #journey #traveler #travelphotography #travelpics⁣

Bruges is much more about wondering the back roads and finding the unique little shops and pubs. But like any good tourist, we had to check off the list of typical “must sees” before getting too lost. ⁣ ⁣ Here’s the short list for Bruges. ⁣ ⁣ 1. Markt— The center Square and heart of Bruges.⁣ ⁣ 2. Belfry of Bruges — Tower on the Markt⁣ ⁣ 2. Church of our Lady Bruges⁣ ⁣ 4. Basilica of the Holy Blood⁣ ⁣ 5. Burg Square⁣ ⁣ 6. Lake of Love⁣ ⁣ ⁣ After checking these off the list, find a local brewery or pub and ask the bar tender to taste his favorite beer. Bruges is the perfect place for small town conversations paired with some big time flavors! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📍Bruges, Belgium ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #bruges #brugge #belgium #brussels #Bruxelles #travel #timetravel #fairytale #travelrhroughtime #charming #littlecity #horses #bridges #takemeback #takemeaway # travelwithme #seetheworld #traveltheglobe #culture #newworld #travelguide #visitbelgium #experience #toptravellist #2020 #besttravel #journey #traveler #travelphotography #travelpics⁣

🤍The Lake of Love🤍⁣ ⁣ ⁣ One of the most memorable views in Bruges is of the swan filled waters under the Bridge of Love. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ WHERE DOES THE NAME COME FROM?⁣ The legend says that a young girl named Minna was in love with a warrior in a neighbouring tribe. Her father did not approve and arranged his own man for her to marry. Minna escaped and ran into the forest. When her love finally found her, she died in his arms of exhaustion. The lake was named after Minna and the bridge symbolizes the strength of true love. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ They say: If you walk over the bridge and kiss your loved one, it will become eternal love. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📍Bruges, Belgium⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #bruges #brugge #belgium #Bruxelles #travel #timetravel #fairytale #love #loveatfirstsight #truelove #horses #eternallove #bridges #takemeback #takemeaway # travelwithme #seetheworld #traveltheglobe #culture #newworld #travelguide #visitbelgium #experience #toptravellist #2020 #besttravel #journey #traveler #travelphotography #travelpics⁣

Not on Sundays.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ If you’re visiting Bruges, try to avoid Sundays. Most of the town shuts down and you will miss the buzzing atmosphere that gives Bruges its charm⁣. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📍Bruges, Belgium⁣

Is time travel possible?⁣ ⁣ ⁣ It is in Belgium!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ We took the train to Bruges, and found ourselves in one of the most charming towns I have ever seen. From the cobblestone streets, horse drawn carriages, and beautiful stone bridges, it genuinely feels like a fairytale. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Our train took 1 hour and 10 minutes to arrive in Bruges, and the trains run about every 20 minutes. There is plenty to see, do, eat, and drink in Bruges. Make sure to bring your camera, and just enjoy strolling through time☺️⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📍Bruges, Belgium⁣

It’s about time we indulge...⁣ ⁣ I don’t know how it’s taken us this long, but I already want another Belgian Waffle! ⁣ ⁣ We went to Maison Dandoy to try just about everything on the menu and there wasn’t a single item I wouldn’t order again😋 @maisondandoy ⁣ ⁣ DID YOU KNOW: There are 2 main types of Belgian waffles⁣ ⁣ BRUSSELS WAFFLES: Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, what most Americans picture when they think of Belgian waffles. The fluffier texture comes from using leavened batter and larger, deeper squares. ⁣ ⁣ LIEGE WAFFLES: Rich and crispy caramelized sugar coating, from using a thicker brioche batter that includes pearl sugar. Their distinctly rounded corners typically surround a 3-by-4 square pattern. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📍Brussels, Belgium

Right around the corner from the Grot Markt, you will find...⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Manneken Pis! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ This 400 year old tiny statue embodies the City of Brussels. Historical and classic yet casual and bizarre. This little guy has so much Belgian spirit, and keeps the moral high with his ever changing wardrobe! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ It’s not a landmark you will need to spend a lot of time at, but it is completely worth stopping by to see what this guy is wearing for the day! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📍Brussels, Belgium

✨ Grand Place or Grote Markt ✨⁣ ⁣ ⁣ You can’t visit Brussels and not wander around the Grand Place. No matter how many times you visit, this spot will always take your breath away.
