However, last Autumn I visited Bruges in Belgium with my family and fell back in love with Europe all over again. The buildings, architecture, skyline... it was just so damn pretty. And we had amazing weather with lots of dramatic skies to top it off... .
SEE: the silhouettes of red brick buildings, against a light blue puffy sky dotted with hot air balloons.
TASTE: the salt on my lips and fingers as I greedily indulge in the best triple-fried Belgium fries around.
SMELL: wet earth, coffee, canal water, chocolate!
HEAR: church bells, street traffic on cobbled lanes, the fizz of my freshly poured kriek cherry beer and laughter in the air around me.
FEEL: happy and relaxed. It's not that often I get to go on holiday with my parents.
Oh - and here's a pic of me. Stuffing my face as usual!
I'm in Spain this lovely almost-Spring weekend. Where in the world are you?
