Bruges is known as "The Venice of the North", a very touristy city and until now the most beautiful in Europe for both Waldo and me. Bruges is not only beautiful for its canals and architecture, but also because it is clean and well planned for car drivers, cyclists and pedestrians all of whom respect the rules. Here you can feel very safe, there are no salesmen or people drinking in the streets. The shops are very stylish and there is no market for selling cheap and tacky things. The most interesting thing is that there are very few police in the streets, so it seems that the safeness of the city is more due to the type of people living there than the police themselves. Really we have nothing bad to say about Bruges, we just want to say that it's fascinating.
