So a couple of weeks ago my bad-ass of a mother flew from Denver to Frankfurt to come see me in Germany. Further, knowing I could use a little break from Bergheim, she was even more of a bad-ass and looked into some cool shit we could do that wasn’t too far from the boring, sleepy little German town that I now call home.
I’ll admit, partially because I really enjoyed the movie that shares a title with this here post, we settled on Bruges, not quite a 3-hour drive away. She found us a nice little apartment in the heart of the old town, and spent a couple of days strolling around the little Belgian city eating their waffles and drinking their beers and shit.
As said movie aptly describes it, Bruges is right out of a fairy tale. It’s an incredibly scenic, romantic and beautiful little place. After hours and hours of exploring and about 1800 pictures later, I was kind enough to make you this little video. So, you can spend the next 5 minutes seeing just about all there is to see from this little town, and hear a pretty solid Cake song while you’re at it. And you won’t even have to deal with any jet-lag. Seems like a solid deal to me…
That’s all for now. More from Bruges to follow, not mention some damn pretty pictures of Cologne, to toot my own horn just a bit.
Don’t be a stranger.
