If it's Tuesday . . .
If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium" was a 1969 comedy movie about a group who travel to nine countries in 18 days. During the whirlwind trip, things get so crazy that the only way the travelers know what country they're in is to check the day on their itinerary.
Well, today is Tuesday and I just spent it at Bruges, Belgium (also spelled Brugge). It's on the UNESCO World Heritage List because it's maintained a lot of its architecture from back in midieval times when it was a famous trading center.
I enjoyed the boat trip on the canals (that connect it with Ghent). I also enjoyed just walking the streets and taking in the feel of the place. Did you know that much of the city is one meter below sea level?
Brugges is about an hour and a half train ride, so our group came and went on the same day. You can see some of the things to do here.
The Minnewater is also called the Lake of Love.
