One of my top things I wanted to do in Belgium was visit Brugges, a storybook town just outside of Brussels. It has canals running through similar to Venice but on a much smaller scale. We loved walking the streets checking out the architecture.
We stumbled across a farmers market. But this one had a twist. Live animals! you could buy rabbits, chicks, ducks, and hens/roosters. Most were just a few euro. Ella and Miles wanted to buy a few things but they just wouldn't fit in our bags. Maybe next time kids.
Next up the canal tour. It was a great way to see the city and learn about some of the building along the way. What do you think the kids thought? hmm. The smiles say it all.
