A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
I love the combination of wit and history that Smart Travels host Rudy Maxa imparts in every episode. Here, he takes us through notable spots in both Brussels and Bruges. We learn about Brussels’ art and architectural influences, take in some of its beloved beer, visit one of its renowned puppet shows, and indulge in the superb chocolate. In Bruges we see the painstaking process of lace-making at Kantcentrum and stroll through the quiet, quaint streets. Rudy summarizes Belgium best: willing to adapt to new ideas, but fiercely loyal to its elegant, Old World heritage.
