Christmas In Bruges


When husband told us that because of work, he wouldn't be able to spend Christmas with us, I knew one thing for sure: there was no way I would celebrate Christmas at home without him. Way too depressing.
And that is why the kids and I, along with Fairy Godmother, rented a little cottage in DeHaan, right on the Belgium coast, nearby Bruges.


I had been to Bruges for the first time in spring, when husband took us there for my birthday and I fell  in love with it.





Small cobblestone streets, beautiful houses, tiny shops and little unexpected surprises lurk around every corner.


The canals, the history of Brugge...I love walking around there, taking this place in...









...and then, of course, there is the Belgium specialty of waffles, stacked high with home make ice-cream, bananas, whip cream and/or chocolate sprinkles...


...chocolate shop, next to chocolate shop...




...and last but not least, our Christmas Eve lunch of Belgium frittes with Samurai sauce, ketchup/mayonnaise/fresh onion sauce and Bicky sauce.

I have never been to Bruges but I have always heard good things about it. Looks like a nice visit!
