    ... paths were quite charming (other than trying to roll you suitcase over them - it which case it inspired creativity as we navigated the smoothest path to avoid our arms jostling out of their sockets).

The two cities look very similar, however Brugge is even smaller than Amsterdam but much easier to navigate. We didn't get lost once, which is always nice.
