Brugge is truly a lovely place to visit, very cute, very quaint. Delightful small shops, and the square is magnificent.I have been there a few times, but only for quick visits. If any of you get to either re-visit or visit for the first time, I hope you have a wonderful time.Nicolette - yes your right, out of tourist season is the best, thats when I like going places!!Cherrypie, pleased I brought back fond memories for you. I remember going with my husband for a day, years ago, mine were fond memories as well!!Rochambeau.. I am surprised you haven't heard of Brugge, very historic. So pleased I brightened your day though :-)ReplyDeleteAnne in Oxfordshire14 September 2008 at 18:25Erin - very cute place, you would love it.Leslie - Architecture is brilliant, shops very cute.My Melange - you would love the flea markets over there, you would need more than a day here though:-)Linda - all preserved, which is so great.

I did some theater there and LOVED it!Thanks again for taking the time to stop by and say hi!Have a wonderful week, Anne!ReplyDeleteRowena15 September 2008 at 16:07Anne, I couldn't help but focus in on the chocolate shop (I luvvv chocolate), but are those several sets of boobs in the window? They look like they have demi-bras on but boy do they take demi to a new level!ReplyDeletecasalba16 September 2008 at 08:39It does look like a great place for shopping - even for bras.But, hang on, are they selling Christmas stuff already??? Years just keep getting shorter and shorter.ReplyDeleteAnne in Oxfordshire16 September 2008 at 21:56Hi Ron thank you so much for your great comments about my blog!
