Beautiful Bruges!!

The town of Bruges-I've taken a few photos for you to see!!






Hi to everyone and thanks so much for all the lovely comments you've been leaving me!! Well Bruges, to sum it up is absolutely beautiful! We were there one day and the travelling was rather a killer (a total of more than 10 hours on the coach!) but Bruges was well and truly worth it!! We had about 4-5 hours there and we had a lovely lunch first, then started our sightseeing. As you can tell from the photos, Bruges is stunning and we managed to see quite a bit! I went all that way, only to find a Sue Ryder charity shop, which is 5 minutes up the road from where I live too-haha! Well, I had to look inside, of course! I tried on an YSL jacket but it was too small-never mind!! We also found a lovely little antique boutique shop, where Christoper bought some pins for 1 euros each-he bought 6 for him and 1 for me!! My one is the Lido in Paris, I will show it to you soon!






Of course, I brought home some belgium chocolates for us, Chris's mum and my mum and at the eurotunnel shopping terminal I just had to buy the new Christian Dior 'Escale a Portofino' Perfume-it's absolutely gorgeous-very fresh, lemony and summery!! I would recommend anyone to see this lovely town-it is soo pretty and quaint, with its cobbled streets, winding canals, old architecture and horse drawn carriages trotting around, competing for space with walkers and people on their bikes!! We came home tired and happy and I'm pleased that we had a wonderful time in this gorgeous place!!

Love the pictures. You look so great in yellow & he's adorable. I keep thinking of the film. Its nice to see someone having fun there and not being in the middle of some scary stuff on the streets. But I did like the film.

Thanks for finding some time to read & comment. I really appreciate it. Hopefully, I'll get to that dinner soon.
