Hi, Baukjen here.
Last weekend we were invited to a fabulous party in Holland for my cousin’s birthday. We decided to take half a day on Friday and first go to Bruges in Belgium for a mini weekend and then on to the party Saturday evening. We left the office Friday midday and drove to Bruges via the Euro Tunnel. Four and a half hours later, we arrived in Bruges. It’s one of our favourite places. We stayed at the Pand Hotel where we had a gorgeous room overlooking the rooftops.
Before we set out for a walk around the town we had some tea which came with all kinds of delicious things. We then spent a few hours walking around the town and we were lucky it was a gorgeous day. Every 3rd shop seems to be a chocolaterie, they love their chocolate! In the evening we had a gorgeous dinner followed by a walk again through Bruges. It really is beautiful. The next day we did some shopping and spent an hour in Het Bruges Theehuis (the Bruges tea shop). We left with bags of different kinds of tea. And then we went off to the party which was fabulous! A perfect weekend.
