Accommodation: Snuffel Hostel. Don’t doubt the odd name, as this hostel exceeded all expectations- spacious rooms, clean bathrooms, large lockers and even a fun, casual bar.
Pretty cool: Take a brewery tour of De Halve Maan, which has an incredible rooftop view of this picturesque town.
Don’t miss it: Rent bikes and head out to the beach [ located on the Dutch border ]. The bike path along the canals is peaceful and scenic. Just don’t get lost like we did! A 10-mile bike ride turned into 46 miles.
Wish I had more time for: Another night or two to explore the night scene. Bruges has so many cool bars and a lot of delicious beer. I wish I had been able to check out a few more.
Must try food/drink: Chocolate, Belgium waffles, fries and Brugse Zot beer.
Here’s a hint: Don’t mention Nutella…Apparently, the Belgians aren’t the biggest fans.
[ Next stop ]: Train to Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
