Brugges is a very special place. My father's family immigrated from there not so long ago. My name, VandeKerckhove (Van-De-Care-Cove), is Flemmish for "from the churchyard."
The Other Venice
Brugges is often referred to as "The Other Venice" because of its numerous canals. Brugges itself is like something out of a fairytale. Each window has a flower box and lace curtains. Oh, and the Belgian waffles and chocolates were everything I had hoped!
