Picture Perfect Bruges

There are some places in the world where you never expect to travel even once in your life, leave alone twice. Bruges, in Belgium, happens to be one such city in my list. I first visited the town in 2007 with a group of stagiaires (interns) when I was interning at the European Commission in Brussels. I next visited Bruges in late 2017. Surprisingly enough, with the exception of the central square I hardly remembered anything about Bruges from my first visit. It was almost like visiting a completely new city! Some photographs from my recent visit.

One of the things I did not remember about Bruges was the abundance of canals running through the city

    It’s crazy how quickly you can forget some places, particularly those as pretty as Bruges. I’m glad you got the chance to go back. Beautiful photos.

    The stage in our lives at which we see a place or a person makes a difference in our memories.

      That is true but I had drastically different memories which was what was surprising
