Postcards From Bruges, Belgium

We visited Bruges from Antwerp (95km approx.) and spent the morning hours exploring this World Heritage Site on foot. Bruges, like Amsterdam, is a canal based city and the canal cruises were tempting but we resisted.

Morning hours are always the best to tour a site, when people are just settling down to their respective works, the excitement to explore is at its max. We were greeted by grey skies, luckily for us the clouds decided not to pour. The brick red facades looked good with grey backgrounds.

The city has been restored its past glory, the repainted 14th and 15th century buildings look elegant. The two town squares, Market square and Burg square are worth the visit. I felt like lingering on for some more time, very reluctantly I moved on.
