Not in Bruges

I'm back! After a weekend of eating... drinking... eating... drinking (can you spot a pattern?), Mr TR and I returned late last night from Bruges. It's a fantastic place -- around every corner is yet another wonderful sight and the canals make it seem so peaceful. My phone is playing up, but I have managed to download a few of my many photos. Enjoy!

Hope you all had a great weekend, too.





I'll be back on Wednesday, talking about the A-Z Challenge and how to blog like it's not a chore. Until then, grab a chocolate from the photo above and enjoy!

  41. If you hadn't already enraptured me with those gorgeous pics of Bruges, you would have got me with those chocs at the end. I'm so jealous! Did you scoff your face? Did you try every flavour? Did you hold a chocolate in your hand until it melted and then lick it off? Did you bring any home with you? Did you? Did you? Well?!!!!

  49. Lovely pictures, but I don't know if I could relax living (or working) that close to water. Ack. I'd be paranoid about the basement springing a leak.

  53. Hello Tali,
    I am meeting you thru A-Z challenge. Plus I've seen your name so much on other blogs I follow, I just had to pop over. Hubby and I fell in love with Bruges when we were there a few years ago. These photos brought back lovely memories.

  54. Looks like you had a great time! I shared the photos with my sister, who's husband has relatives in Bruges. And, yes please, I'll take a tray of the darkest chocolate...

    ReplyDelete
  55. Lovely! The daffodils are blooming in my woods as well, but only just.
    And wouldn't you like to be one of those people who live on the canals all summer (In UK, I mean)? They're always so tan and healthy from steering out in the sun. And they have those canal boats with, like, mini-everything and a place for all the mini-everythings.

  56. Talli, the picture of you in the field of flowers is amazing. You need to get that framed.

    ReplyDelete
