Welcome to another post of helping a reader travel! As I’ve mentioned before, I have not been to every destination (unfortunately), but do get questions from friends and other blog readers on all sort of travel destination questions. Thus far, we’ve been able to help other readers travel to Maui, The Greek Islands, Pacific Coast Highway, Argentina / Buenos Aires, Costa Rica, Cape Cod & The Islands, Iceland, Geneva, Canadian Rockies, Rome, Israel, Peru, Las Vegas, Stockholm, Chicago, Paris, Hanoi, Austin, and Puerto Rico.
So this weeks travel destination includes Bruges, Belgium. I received the following email from reader Matt:
“I am taking off a month of work and traveling around Europe with my wife. We have most of our itinerary set but am still looking for 1-2 more cities to fill our time. I’ve read some good things about Bruges in Belgium, but don’t hear of it often enough from other travelers. Does anyone have any suggestions about this city? Would you recommend going to it? Where would you stay and what is there to do? We are looking for a few “off the beaten path” locations and Bruges seems to fit that criteria. From what I’ve read it is supposed to be beautiful and some have called it the “Venice of the North.” If anyone has been there or has suggestions for other cities, it would be much appreciated. Thank you everyone!”
If you’ve ever been to Bruges and any recommendations, let’s help out reader Matt by commenting below.
Also, if you have any upcoming travel where you need some help, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be a featured “Help a Reader Travel” Monday special. Thanks!
