Bruges, Belgium

A 90 minute train ride from Brussels airport will take you to the charming city of Bruges.  We spent the day walking along the canals, sampling Belgian beers, and eating too many Belgian waffles.  Wine is not the only beverage that ages well.  We stopped at a local store off Bruges main market to pick up Westvleteren’s dark ale, which can be aged.  The “best beer in the world” is made by monks in a Trappist monastery outside Brussels.  This post to be updated in 2018 when we try it.
