Who Mentioned Bruges?

Someone recently mentioned Bruges in a blog post.  I know they did.  I'm sure they did.  I'm sure because mention was made (and there was a YouTube clip) of the film In Bruges.  Comment was made that regardless of the film's merits it showed lots of footage of the old city of Bruges.  I thought that it was Jenny Woolf of The English Travel Writer.  I suppose that was a natural association.  I went to Jenny's blog this evening to comment and discovered that it wasn't her blog where I'd seen it.

I can't find a reference anywhere. 

So this evening having watched the film (not to be recommended except for the scenery) I don't know to whom I want to make that fact known.  Can anyone help me?  Pleeeeeeeeease!

Life can be very frustrating sometimes.


  1. That was Alex when he was there....
    I turned the film off halfway but might watch a bit again to see the place!

  2. Thank you so much Fiona. I was beginning to think I'd gone doolally. I wouldn't bother to be honest Fiona. The setting is beautiful but the film (apart from the fact that it must have more uses of the F word than all the other films I've ever seen put together) really is very second rate.

  3. Stupid me - instead of checking whether anyone had already come back to you on that question, I went and checked quite a few of the blogs on my dashboard for anything about Bruges... I was pretty sure I had not seen it mentioned anywhere, but since my memory can easily fail me on such things, I checked anyway, and of course didn't find anything.
    (That was three words beginning with "any" in one sentence, but not on purpose)

  4. Glad you found the solution, GB. I knew it couldn't have been me, because I don't have a blog site and I've never seen the film in question -- and probably never will, though I have been to Bruges, and thought it was charming. And the chocolates were superb!! (You can tell where my mind is at the moment ... oh well...)

  5. I read about Bruges too, recently, but I can't remember where. It's one of those places that I wish to visit, although so far I haven't done so.
    By the way whatever happened to Secretly Skint? Did you ever find out?

    1. I would like to know, too; I wrote to her when she first closed her blog, and she replied once, but then I heard nothing more.
