Paris is always amazing and will have a spot in my heart but BRUGGE BELGIUM is my favorite city I have visited so far! I cannot wait to go back the Spring and Summer when they have all their flowers and amazing festivals. If I fell in love with this place when it was Winter and nothing was really going on then I know I will be swept off my feet when the action hits this country during the warmer Seasons. So that would be my first bit of advice, visit this place during Spring and Summer.
We took the bus from Paris to Brussels, visited the Grand place (pictured above) and stuffed our faces with the most amazing food. Seriously come here with an appetite you will want to eat your way from one side of the country to the other. We then took a train to Brugge (Bruges, different ways to say but are basically the same) where we stayed. There is not a bad place to stay in Brugge, you will see in OUR VIDEO above that we stayed right on the water looking out onto a canal. It was amazing!!!
Hope you enjoyed and thanks so much for stopping by! Next post will be on our adventures in Amsterdam.

Paris is SUCH a dream, they hype is real and it was even better with my main squeeze, there is so much to do in Paris and you can make them super romantic if you’re into that. I am a die hard romantic so you know I made some of our outings super cheesy! In our PARIS VLOG above I listed the top ten places to visit so be sure to watch that. There are three tips I want to give you on our experience on traveling in Paris.
Traveling tips for Paris:
Get a hotel that is centered so you can walk or bus to the main sites, you will save a lot of money this way. The hotel I recommend is HOTEL BALMORAL we were no joke a 60 second walk away from Arc De Triomphe. There were so many delicious restaurants, markets and cafe options to choose from. I definitely felt like a local in this location.
The best, cheapest & fastest way to see all of the hot spots in Paris is by doing a hop on hop off bus. You can’t pick a bad bus company, ours was a little under $30 for each of us. You get head phones so as you drive to all the different destinations you get a lot of interesting history on Paris. The bus stops are so close to Hotel Balmoral which was super convenient!
When you are looking for a pastry shop, which you need to go to at least 3 times a day! I am a little biased though because I LOVE baked goods, sweet and savory sooo needless to say the Paris diet is a dream for me. But to ensure you get the very best baked goods make sure the bakery says Patisserie (obviously, they all say that because that’s what they are, so that’s why it can get super overwhelming to know which one to go to) as well as BOULANGERIE. Legally the Patisserie can only have the word boulangerie attached to their cafe if they make their bread in house. So that’s when you know its good!
I hope you enjoyed this post, thanks for stopping by!
