Busking in Brugge


Unfortunately we spent just two days in Brugge which is one of the most beautiful city in Belgium and in Europe. Most of the time we just walked and got lost on the streets of Brugge and we didn't play that much. So this post will be more about travelling than street music. Sorry about that!

You have to apply for a permit, which you have to pay for. I think it's quite easy to get it though we played without it but just for an hour.

Our experiance:
It was great! :) We took a bus from Gent to Brugge for 2 euros (though it takes two hours, but you can find trains for 5 euros or so and it's there in 20 minutes) and as soon as we were there we started discovering the city by ourselves. :) It's like you're walking in a fairy tale. Beautiful! :) I cannot describe it in words so here are some pictures:

We saw some really old windmills at the edge of the city center and it was already dark when we got to the center again. The buildings were lit up and the channels reflected the pretty lights. We were hypnotized by the athmospere. We couldn't make as many pictures as we would have liked cause the camera's battery was almost empty but still we made some pretty pictures in my opinion. :)

The last day we tried to play a little in the center right before a bridge in a really narrow street. It could've been better. We made 18 euros in an hour but it was enough to cover our travelling costs :)

It was a really nice small trip, we will never forget :)
