The Heritage Hotel, Brugge, Belgium

We rented bikes and rode up to Damme for lunch, this was the view on the way, beautiful!

Just down from the Heritage Hotel

We ate at a cafe not far from our hotel when these two walked
on by, it looks like they're both fighting over something....
there were many dogs in Amsterdam and in Brugge

On our bike ride from Brugge to Damme, we took lots of
photos of the streets, this was near downtown Damme

Ahh...the Heritage Hotel in Brugge.  We were pleasantly welcomed to the hotel by its owner and manager Isabelle Creytens.  Isabelle offered us a map of Brugge's sites and parts of the city we should see, and spoke English that was really nice.  Kara mentioned of course, that it was my birthday and her anniversary, so after we had checked in, I had a note on our bed with a coupon for a glass of wine and later Kara found a bottle of champagne in her room, how sweet.  Isabelle also helped me one morning to the breakfast buffet when I arrived 15 minutes before they were ready to have guests, how thoughtful.  The rooms were clean and equipped with a mini bar, large closet, extra blankets and pillows and a piece of dark chocolate on the pillow every evening, what a nice touch.  Kara and I asked Isabelle if the restaurant we picked was ok, and she said, "Rockfort, what a great place!"  We loved that she was excited about our choice of restaurants in the historic city that was founded in 1128...that's not a type-o, 1128 is correct.  You can read more about the wonderful city via wikpedia:

The Heritage Hotel, Brugge, Belgium, must be on your list when visiting Belgium.  It is a wonderful, friendly hotel, and the breakfast every morning was superb.  I'd expect you'll be wonderfully surprised during your stay as well.  Just tell Isabelle that me and Rick Steves' sent you there, you won't be disappointed!
