Joined a day trip to Brugge (Bruges) in Belgium. Brugge is one of Europe's most appealing and picturesque cities, described as the "Venice of the North". Brugge boasts a labyrinth of canals which dissect the medieval splendor of the buildings. Brugge has classified as a World Heritage City, it need to preserve the outlook as much as it is.
It was a tiring trip, but I think it's worth, cost me £39 only.
Can't remember what is this structure call, it's to block the wave
