I’ve never heard of Bruges. To be perfectly honest, I had no idea what did it look like or what was it famous for. With no research whatsoever, we decided to choose it over Brussels, as we liked the idea of the unknown.
The train journey from Paris to Bruges was long and stressful, or so we thought it was. With a few train changes and a lot of waiting getting a chance to discover a part of Lille on our way was a little bonus to pick us up.
