It is time to say goodbye to peaceful Brugge. (Please click to enlarge).
Brugge seems to be the land that crime, strife and stress forgot.
The windmills on the perimeter of the old city were built in 1770.
They can be toured, but few tourists did while we were there, which is a shame because they are mechanical works of wonder and a challenge to safely climb!
Although the tourist center is crowded with day visitors, the city empties out in the early evening.
Even in the middle of the day, the streets a few blocks away from the tourist center are mostly empty.
Brugge is full of beautiful old cathedrals,
and charming old homes built on the canals.
Cheers to you & farewell to beautiful Brugge~
