New Years in Bruges

Despite Colin Farrell’s character, Ray, famously saying in the film In Bruges ‘Maybe that’s what hell is, the entire rest of eternity spent in f****g Bruges’, it really is a rather lovely place, and gorgeous at Christmas time with all the lights and cosiness of the (many) pubs.

image

It’s been described as Venice of the North, with it’s many winding canals and well preserved Medieval architecture - and is certainly a lot prettier than Brussels.

Was pretty cold and grey…

image

…but nothing a (very) strong Belgian beer and frites couldn’t sort out

image

The main square, the Markt had the standard  Christmas market and ice rink and was so pretty at night.

image

We headed there to watch the fireworks for New Years Eve…with the bells ringing out on  the clock tower it was quite surreal.

Here’s the Fenwick family selfie …

Seems the fireworks weren’t good enough for everyone. We passed these guys on the way home (from the local Indian restaurant) setting off rockets rather precariously in the middle of a (very busy, narrow) road. Not dangerous at all…

image

Our apartment was situated rather perfectly on a canal but also right next door to the oldest pub in Bruges, the Herberg Vlissinghe. We had a bit of trouble getting in the door (literally) as there was a rubbish truck parked right outside blocking the road. When we got inside, there were 3 rubbish men sitting at the bar, obviously having a swift pint before moving on. Hopefully they were sticking to the not so strong beer (so 8% rather than the standard 12%).

And one for the road…

This…

reminds me why he was plastered all over my walls when I was 15. 

And this one which I think I ripped out of Girlfriend magazine at the height of 21 Jump Street. It was massive (the poster).

Those cheekbones. Be still my beating heart.

My next holiday wardrobe…

…ok maybe the one after next as my next trip is planned for winter in Bruges, but my next SUMMER holiday I want to be dressed like this. Of all the SS2014 shows to date, this is one of my faves (perhaps after ‘safe’ Ralph Lauren and not so safe Simone Rocha).  It’s proper va va voom Riviera dressing from DSquared. There’s plenty of swimwear but not sure if I have the legs long enough to pull it off, so would stick to this:

Love the colour on this. I wear to go shopping. For espadrilles with a straw basket.

This is for a lunch. By the sea.

Cocktails on a yacht. Although the shoes might have to come off. 

And this just wandering around the cobbled streets. Living in London I’m pretty good at walking on cobbles in heels.
