Christmas in Belgium

I know it’s a little past the holiday season, but I realized that I never posted any of my pictures from my trip to Belgium.  Back in mid-December I tagged along with some friends from school for a weekend in Brussels and Bruges.  Both were beautiful, and the Christmas markets were lots of fun (full disclosure: I am a mulled wine addict). Bruges was like a fairytale town; from the architecture and cute restaurants to the swans floating in the river. Admittedly this trip was also filled with lots of chocolate and beer, with two brewery tours and some chocolate I bought as ‘Christmas presents’ (more went to myself than anyone else really so…) Anyways time to get back in the holiday spirit and settle in for a lovely Belgian adventure!

The most adorable restaurant. A cozy night out with good friends was just what I needed in December!

What’s a trip to Belgium without a little Belgian beer?

Since everything I knew about Bruges was from the Colin Farrell movie I obviously recognized this church
