*Warning...this post is very picture heavy!*
The week after Thanksgiving,
J & I decided to take a trip to Brugge, Belgium.
We had heard wonderful things about the city- how romantic it is,
how much there is to do, how beautiful it is, etc.
We knew there was an international ice festival going on,
so we hopped in the car and away we went.
Our hotel was right next to the train station,
which is where the ice festival was taking place.
It was convenient, inexpensive and clean.
In other words, it perfectly fit our needs
and for 49 euro a night,
we couldnt complain!
I have so many photos from our trip, but
I didnt want to overload you so Ive
broken it up into two posts.
The ice festival took place in 3 very large tents set up
in front of the Brugge central train station.
It was 21º inside but it felt so much colder!
We spent about 45 minutes examining the
impressive ice sculptures before moving on to the
warm up tent. By that time,
our toes were so numb that we couldnt feel them
and our noses looked like Rudolph,
but we really enjoyed the festival!
The theme of the ice festival this year was "Around the World".
It featured sculptures of landmarks and icons from
multiple places around the world.
