Gimme Shelter — Enchanting Medieval Buildings and Swans, Too?!

Just to clarify, I did not put the swans in the canal for this shot. They swam into view just to prove what a fairytale setting Bruges/Brugge really is.  I don’t use adjectives like “charming” and “enchanting,” but you really have no choice when talking about this beautiful medieval Belgian city.  It is charming and enchanting —  however, maybe not as “happily ever after” when it was the setting for the 2008 film “In Bruges” with Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. Actually, it was still enchanting even in the dark comedy.

  1. Bruges really is a beautiful city. It was my favorite of the three I visited in Belgium. And it really is kind of cool when swans show up where they look like they should be!
