I went to Brugge Christmas Market


For Six Word Saturday 

Last Sunday, I crossed the English Channel and spent the day at the Brugge Christmas Market. The main attraction for me however, was what Belgium is famous for - moulles frites, chocolate and a choice of 360 or so different beers!

This first picture is the bottom corner of a six-foot tall chocolate Christmas tree in a chocolatier's shop window. I would have bought it, but it might have been a bit difficult to get home!

...and then a leisurely stroll back to the car park.

    1. Darla, it is a beautifully photogenic place any time of the year. It's known as the Venice of the North because of its canals - another subject for another day trip!

  13. Was it too difficult to get home because of size, or because you would have taken too many bites of it.

    1. Thinking about it, if I'd eaten half before I left, I might just have got it the car!

  16. I love Bruges - chocolate,lace and canals. You could have bought the choccy tree and eaten all the bits that were awkward to pack.
