For our first wedding anniversary Brian and I headed to Bruges, Belgium. The weather was gorgeous, the beer was delicious and the company couldn’t be beat. Although we had a difficult journey (several trains were cancelled) we arrived early enough to wander around the beautiful neighborhood we were staying in. The next morning, after Brian gave me a lovely necklace as an anniversary present, we found a bike rental shop. We have been through many challenges in the past year, some we have conquered successfully while others have given us wounds to lick. The challenge for our anniversary was mastering the tandem bikeâ€¦ or if not mastering, than at least somehow plowing through 20 miles.
The title of the post sums up the extent of our time in Brussels – no need to read further. I kid, we did manage to see a quality street performer, do a walking tour, score some souvenirs, and have delicious hamburgers. Honestly, we didn’t put much work into seeing the “must” attractions. We just wanted to soak up the Belgianness of the city.
