Amsterdam and Romantic Brugge
When A and I were visiting Amsterdam earlier in the year, we stumbled upon a market whilst wandering through the streets of Amsterdam and had the opportunity to try some chocolate crepes and to admire the colourful display of mushrooms, dried fruit & nuts. During our strollm it started drizzling so we ducked into a pub for some warmth and to try some traditional Dutch food. We had an antipasto platter of salamis, cold meats & cheese and a traditional pea soup.
We spent one night (only- sob, sob) in Brugge on the way to London and promptly fell in love with this romantic city. Although the city was filled with chocolate shops, many of them were not worth visiting. Luckily, the head chocolatier, Dries, from our local haunt, Koko Black, had recommended a visit to The Chocolate Line, where he used to work. The chocolate here was definitely a cut above the rest but, to be honest, we're not missing much in Melbourne!
