Our trip to Liege is anything but ordinary.
I've never been to Liege before and I’m excited to visit a new European city. For Ryan, however, Liege is a special trip down memory lane. Ryan lived in Liege for a year as a Rotary Exchange Student when he was in high school and he hasn't been back since. Therefore, a visit to Liege is exciting for both of us!
We’re likely going to be going in different directions for the day. Ryan’s going to be retracing the footsteps of his 17 year old self, while I’m going to discover the city’s more classic sights and have lots of fun exploring. It’s no accident we’re in Liege on a Wednesday. This is the traditional day that exchange students gather together at a couple of the local pubs and we wanted Ryan to relive the real, authentic student experience one more time.
Can you find free chocolate in Bruges? Yes!
On my one and only visit to Bruges, over 12 years ago, it was pouring rain so I did what any sensible person would do – I found a restaurant! I still remember polishing off a plate of cherry crepes after eating a full lunch. It’s finally time to revisit the city and see it properly for the first time – hopefully in good weather!
We have just one day and night in Bruges, so we'll have to make the most of it. We’ll be arriving from Paris mid-morning and our plan is to drop our bags at the hotel and spend the day exploring on foot. Experience tells me on day three or four of any trip, the adrenaline starts to die down and while we think we've beaten the jet lag we crash by mid-afternoon. So I’m banking on a nap – and happily so!
None! But we have purchased a Rick Steves e-guidebook, which includes a detailed self-guided walking tour that we’ll use as our starting point.
