BMU_SSSTyles-Different Strokes 2
Being a tourist in my old haunts from way back is always a bit odd but it really opens up my eyes and see 'home' from your point of view, I get the best of both worlds.
Bruges, the capital of West Flanders in northwest Belgium, is distinguished by its canals, cobbled streets and medieval buildings. Its port, Zeebrugge, is an important center for fishing and European trade. In the city center’s Burg square, the 14th-century Stadhuis (City Hall) has an ornate carved ceiling. Nearby, Markt square features a 13th-century belfry with a 47-bell carillon and 83m tower with panoramic views.
My home town of Oostende is a 30 minute drive to Bruges. I used to spend most weekends shopping and as I got older I would hop on the train and spend a few happy hours here with friends. I took my own children to Bruges, we spend time walking through the town. I have family who live a 20 minute walk from this photo. It still hasn’t changed over many a year. The only thing that changes is the price of a bag of chips and mayo , the best in the world. Love this place.
