... bunk in a 6 bed, female dorm and we unloaded all of our stuff. We then decided to go for a walk to the main square (about 7 min down the road) and see what we could see! Bruges is a beautiful, historic town with all sorts of fantastic architecture and cobblestone roads. There are horse drawn carriage rides EVERYWHERE, chocolate shops all over and many boutiques. We realised that we didn't have any ...
