Saturday Snapshot

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. To participate, post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

I have been sick in bed most of the week with a bad cold, so I’ve got no new pictures (they’d be of tea cups and tissues, I’m afraid). Instead, I found some interesting things in the archives. Back in 2009, I had a long work trip to Amsterdam and 2 colleagues and I spent the weekend in Brugges. It was the weekend of misadventure, which is why most of pictures of the city are at night.

First, we stayed at a lovely inn just outside of town:

I always thought this place must be really beautiful in the summer.

We got into town very late, so we saw the city mostly by night, when the fountains are quite dramatic.

And the lighting makes everything mysterious.

    Thanks for sharing your travel photos – they give me itchy feet :-)
    Do you remember the name of the inn?

    My favorite is the final picture. Those doors and the lights shining on the building… Here’s Mine

    I haven’ been to many places abroad, but I’ve been to Bruges twice, and loved it. You’ve taken some beautiful shots of a beautiful cit. My Snapshot is at

    Brona, I don’t remember the name of the inn. I found it online and we chose it because it was very affordable, being just outside the city. The funny thing is that it has this lovely old-world feel to it (the door to the room had a big iron key!) but just over the fence was a Fiat dealership!

    So pretty! I’m sorry about you being sick, though. That’s no fun :(

    Fueling my desire to go to Bruges! Even in these evening pictures it looks charming and quiet somehow. Thanks for sharing these.

    I bet your stories of misadventure are entertaining! Lovely photos! I hope you are feeling better.

    Countryside inns offer a different perspective. There is an added mystery like you wrote when you arrived at night in places you have never been before. The photos can add that memory of mystery.

    Wonderful photos.

    These are wonderful shots. We visited Brugges in July 2005. This makes me want to go dig out my photos. :-)
    I hope you are feeling better and that the bug doesn’t hang on.
