I have had the chance to visit Bruges a couple of times and I would say that it's one of the most beautiful places in Belgium. It's also a great destination for a romantic getaway. If you travel through Belgium, please make sure that you don't miss this gem of a city.
Before leaving to the US, I invited my family to celebrate my birthday. I picked the restaurant Café bei der Giedel because they serve great food, it's such a cosy place and although each of us had been there before, we had never gone together.
