Bruges, Damme and Flanders in Belgium

Bruges’ main square, bordered by medieval buildings, dominated by a bell tower and populated by horse-drawn carriages, is one of Europe’s most beautiful squares. This is the commercial heart of the city centre and where all day’s sightseeing tend to begin and end. Brugges is easily accessible on foot or one of the many bicycles, Our B and B gave us bikes for the day so we could ride along the canals to the north…

While here we signed the Remembrance Book and I left a poppy in remembrance of my grandfather who had been gassed while serving in WWI…it was an emotional moment.
