... the outside of town, through pretty tree-covered paths and past majestical lakes (the Lake of Love in fact).
We stopped off for chocolate and banana waffles along the way (a specialty in Belgium) and found ourselves at a little cafe (Vero Caffe) in one of the back streets. Oh. My. God. The BEST double espresso we have had in a long time. It would rival the best places in Brisbane. ...
... a walking tour of the city, which was quite nice. There's only about 20,000 people living in the city centre of Bruges, which means in peak tourist season there's almost more tourists than residents!

Saturday - It was chilly!! We literally just wandered around the city and it was still beautiful. ...
