I fell head-over-heels in love with Bruges… I couldn’t get past the architecture, street food and canals filled with white swans. I can still taste the waffles and mayonnaise-covered frites! After a short train ride from Amsterdam, we arrived in Bruges where we checked in to our very sweet BnB Le Flaneur, which was filled with antique store finds, friendly owners (who made sure I had enough cheese on my plate at breakfast) and a very cute puppy. It was a little out of town, which made for a nice walk each day to-and-from where we were able to see some non-touristy streets.
Amsterdam is such a delightful city, full of incredible architecture, history, amazing art, design, and of course, delicious street food! I can still taste the warm stroopwafle and poffertjes. It didn’t stop raining during our stay – our plans for a bike ride around the city were thwarted – but armed with our umbrellas, we managed to walk absolutely everywhere.
I’ve just started settling back into work after spending the Christmas break relaxing in Byron Bay and Melbourne with Ryan and our friends Mark and Mon. Traveling with a group is always more fun! Here’s a peek into our Summer break full of aperol, trips to the beach and snoozes.
