Photo Diary: A Trip to Bruges

Once a year, I'll take a festive trip with my mum and sister to a Christmas market in the UK or in Europe. Last year was Bath (post here) which is one of my favourites, and this year we travelled to Bruges! It was nice to get away for a few days and just relax, and I know that there will be a ton of laughs with my sister and mum!

This is a little photo diary (trust me, there was a lot to go through!), so enjoy!

Belgian Hot Chocolate

Belgian Waffle and Ice Cream

After a long journey, we had to refill with Belgian Waffles and Hot Chocolate!

Bruges Christmas Square

We checked out all the Christmas markets, although they were a little disappointing, but nevertheless very Christmassy! It all looked so gorgeous at night with all the lights on.


Chocolate Museum

Chip Museum

As Belguim is famous for its chocolate and chips, a trip to the museums was in order. As well as sibling fun with the props!
FYI: Chocolate is actually good for you and doesn't harm your teeth as much as you'd expect!

Bruges Canal Trip

We took a canal ride around the city and had a tour guide telling us all about the old buildings and bridges. The buildings are literally right up to the waters edge, with some having boat doors too. If you're going to Bruges, definitely do a canal trip as it's a great way to see the city!

Bruges Christmas Shop

Of course we did a bit of Christmas shopping - and their shop windows looked beautiful. I think Europe definitely feels a lot more festive than the UK!

Our second to last day was so sunny and bright but still chilly, perfect for a few photos! Our hotel was nearby the canal and I loved being near the water and watching the boats go by. Excuse the squinty face in the last picture!

Brussels Square

Before we caught our Eurostar from Brussels, we had a bit of time to kill so wandered round the city for a while. As well as visiting many fancy chocolate shops!

So there's a few snippets of my trip to Bruges - it's safe to say I ate way too much chocolate and waffles! What do you think?

Thanks for reading
