Since we already toured around the beautiful city of Brugge the past days that we stayed there, we finally ended our day by going to the Belfort or the Belfry and their beer museum.
The first stop of our last day trip is at the beer museum. We were too early to drink beer during our visit, but we are happy enough to see their collection. I think that this is the biggest collection of beer we’ve ever seen. It has most of the European beers and most specially the Belgian beers. It was fun to visit and it’s free!
After our visit at the beer museum,we decided to go to the Belfry. So without looking for any information about the Belfry, we dared to visit the said attraction. I used the word “dare” because we knew that we have to visit the top of the tower. We just did not know how far and how many steps would it take us to the top until we read the information by the reception that the tower is 83 meters high with 366 stairs that we have to climb.
We reached the top! We were glad that it was not that too busy during our visit. We got the chance to look and enjoy our panoramic view of Brugge and hear the loud ringing bells of the Belfry.
After our tiring climb of the tower, my husband treated ourselves to some waffle on a stick, Belgian style! Lovely waffle! They really have the best chocolate!
Day 2: We went boating and walked non-stop.
One thing that is nice to do when you are in Brugge is to do their guided boating tour. It is nice, relaxing and learn the history of Brugge at the same time. Luckily it’s not raining during our visit, it was a perfect day to do the tour.
After our boat trip, we decided to just walk around the center. It is beautiful! I find it nicer than the other big cities in Belgium. I love their chocolates, OMG! They have waffles, crepes and more chocolates. They also love doing handwork like stitching, Brugge is one big museum.
I still can’t get over this view, our hotel gave us their best room. This is what we see whenever we wake up in the morning. You can see swans swimming around and hear all the birds chirping
Another thing in Brugge, it seems that it never sleeps. Brugge is filled with lights at night and when you are there, you feel like you are walking in a fairytale. People are also just walking around and enjoying the lovely sight of this city.
Oh and when you are in Brugge, don’t miss out on eating their mussels. It is one of their specialty there. They even have different kinds of sauces that will really make your mouth water.
Woohoo! So, yes… We are now a record holder of the Hollandse Nieuwe Haring World Record! It is where 1500 people ate “Haring” raw fish at the same time. This event was held last 19th of June 2015.
Haring Raw Fish with onions! Typical dutch food.
We are happy to be a part of it and we are proud to say that me and my husband holds a title of a world record! Relationship goal met!
This is the video of the countdown and of course the eating time! 🙂
Our second day in Iba, Zambales.
The main reason why we were in this place is that because my grandma (the sister of my grandma) is now in the Philippines too and we must really meet her during our month vacation. My grandma let’s us sleep in her wonderful home and gave us very nice food to eat. We told our grandma that we would like to go swimming at the nearby beach. She can’t go though because she have visitors coming too at her home.
So we went to one of the beach resort in Iba, Zambales. I think the resort was named Herras. I must say that it was pretty decent for a day stay and we were glad that the beach was not crowded at all. We were the only people at the beach, it’s like our own private beach! Lucky!
What did we do?
Swimming and Boating
Playing with starfishes and got some sea urchins.

Im free! This day, we went to Noordwijk. We did not plan going there. We just decided to go there since again, I haven’t been to that place yet.
It is a little town in Holland where the beach is located and have a nice shopping street. I like the place and also the food. That day we went eating at Chicoleo a Mexican restaurant and of course roam around. It was a fun and not so warm day.
