Less than 24 hours in Bruges, Belgium – what do you do?
Eat as much as you possibly can, of course!
My Bruges (don’t ask me how to pronounce it, I practiced for a week which evoked many laughs and odd hacking noises) to-do list was as follows:
1. Drink a Belgian beer
2. Eat fries
3. Eat waffles
4. Eat and buy chocolate
That is a chocolate induced smile right there.
I’m happy to report that even in my limited time in that beautiful country I completed the to-do list and then some.
Upon my return I’ve created a new to-do list:
1. Make waffles as good as the Belgian’s do – particularly the Liege waffle.
2. Make Flemish stew.
3. Find a great source for Belgian beer in Seattle then drink some.
4. Plan my return trip to Belgium.
Of course there is more to this stunning city than the food. Like wandering the brick-paved streets in the middle of the night in silence as you take in the stunning architecture, the way the moon reflects on the frozen canal, and the warming thought of drinking a dark beer in a pub established in 1515 – oh, that’s food too, I’m hopeless.
