Last weekend i visited Lille, France and Bruges, Belgium. Lille was so great, i have been in Paris my whole time here and i haven't really moved around within France so it was nice to see another part of the country. While in Lille, we did a lot of sight seeing. Christmas is everywhere you turn here so there were lots of lights and festive people. Later, me and the group of students i went with went to a restaurant called Omnia which turned out to arguably my best meal so far. I don't know if it was the food or the general good mood but i had a blast. Saying i was tired at the time would be an understatement. i could barely move after this meal but i managed to carry myself to a club called Network which is a popular club out there. The next day we visited Bruges for half a day which to me was way too short.I've looked forward to going to Bruges since watching the Colin Farrell Movie "In Bruges". Typical, i know. We saw the sights and indulged in some Belgian waffles and chocolates, visited the chocolate museum. While walking around we found this little mall with a chair you sit on and it spins like a spinning top so my friends and we had a moment of being kids. After this, i was supposed to join the group to tour a beer factory but since that was not really my cup of tea, i decided to hang out with a friend who lives in Bruges instead. He took me on this awesome tour around his town called Damme and i had such a great time just chilling. After my trip i felt amazingly relaxed and ready to take on the world.
