Unexpected Kindness from a Stranger in Bruges

Unexpected Kindness from a Stranger in Bruges

I arrived in Bruges late at night and I could not understand my map. I therefore couldn’t find my way to my hostel, so asked a woman for directions. She said she was going that way so would point me in the right direction, and she ended up walking me to the door.

She told me she worked at the belfry, a medieval bell tower. She told me to come the next morning and she would let me in to this prime tourist attraction for free.

I went, she welcomed me and she handed me a free ticket! I am always thinking about this story when it comes to Bruges.
