If you want to make a woman happy, take her to Brugge!
I went to Brugge on the recommendation of my friends mother so, I didn't think I would like it too much. I was wrong!
I went on a day trip from Paris thinking it would be something I could see in a few hours and not throw off my schedule. I was there for about 5 hours. That was enough to make me change the rest of my plans so I could go back and spend 2 days.
I am not saying you can't see everything you would want to in a few hours but it is the only place where you can feel what it was like 500 years ago.
No ones words will ever do it justice so I won't bother trying. All I will say is, it is the city you will never want to leave. Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, none of these can compare with Brugge. The people are friendly, the food is good and cheap, the hotels are inexpensive, and the history runs deeper than any other city. Brugges was not bombed in either of the world wars, it is what it was: beautiful!
