Some favorite places in Brugge!

When I go to Brugge, I have my favorite shops that I always go to. 'De Binnentuin' is on the top of my list.

This shop is amazing from the moment you approach the store and see all the beautiful windows. The two owners of this shop have impeccable taste in picking out things to sell in their shop. It has something for everyone's budget. You never know where to look first when you walk in as there are so many wonderful things to see.

The shop is set up with an atmosphere of various living rooms. They change all the displays regularly which makes going back a real treat. All the flower arrangments are made by the owners themselves.

Afterwards, what could be better than relaxing with a great drink? I can highly recommend 'De Proeverie' (http://www.deproeverie.be/)which is located in the Katelijnstraat. It is a tearoom owned by Chocolaterie Sukerbuyc (http://www.sukerbuyc.be/) which is located just across the street from the tearoom. We love their warm chocolate milk. You are served a cup of hot and frothy milk into which you pour the most delicous pure melted chocolate. They add real whipping cream on a small dish which is so good it is hard to not take a few spoonfuls before adding it to your chocolate milk. This is topped with a chance to try a few pieces of chocolate and a bonbon. I am a chocoholic and to me this is pure heaven!

Beautiful pictures and I wish I could visit these shops as well. I just love the items that I can see in these pictures. I am not a fan of chocolate, but it all sounds wonderful!
