Ryanair and easyJet flights might still be considered low cost now but, back in the early 2000s, they were really cheap. And, so, as a bunch of us were studying abroad in London, we flew out almost every weekend to whichever city was super cheap to fly to on one of these airlines.
Grote Markt / Grand Place
Manneken-Pis or, Pissing Boy aka Petit Julien. I didn’t expect it to be this tiny (that’s what she said).
Other attractions: Belgian Comic Strip Center, Galler Chocolatier, Galeries Royales, Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula
Another Grote Markt and Stadhuis (City Hall)
Cathedral of Our Lady or, in Dutch, Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal
Sijia, Deanna, Amy, Jenny, Justin, me, Pam, Heejin, Melinda (not pictured)…and the view from Linkeroever
The canals of Bruges
Um, and don’t forget to gorge on waffles, frites, chocolate and beer. Not kidding.
