Christmas in Bruges
My cousin had this cool idea to spend Christmas in Bruges. And I, as we all know so far, can’t say no to a good travel opportunity. I’ve never been to Belgium before, but I’ve seen so many photos of Brugge on the web and heard so many people saying it’s a fairytale city. I was looking forward to seeing this city with my own eyes.
