The one thing I wanted to do more than anything else when I was little was travel. Coming from a large family it wasn’t really logistically feasible (I wouldn’t want to be one of two adults looking after six children in a foreign country).
Whilst my horizons aren’t particularly broadened, I am trying to work on that. I’ve been reading a lot of The Peaceful Mom and The Year of Frugal Living to work out ways I can save a little extra to put towards seeing the world.
I always tell myself that there are so many wonderful places to see that I shouldn’t go to the same place twice, but I’ve never been anywhere I wouldn’t want to return to someday.
Bruges is a beautiful little city with so much to offer. Even in the rain.
We visited Bruges last year and when the option came up to go again I leapt at the offer – thank you again to the guys at the Student Union for organising such a brilliant day.
After running round the market and eating our body weight in Tartiflette we visited Choco-Story to learn the history of cacao (more on that later you lucky people!) and then visited possible the oldest pub in the world.
I really can see Bruges being one of those cities that I visit every year, you leave with a sugar high and so many more ideas of where visit and I cannot wait to get back there.
