Brussels, Belgium

Start the day with a delicious iced coffee – created with brewed coffee that has been frozen into ice cubes, then dropped in think warm milk with a bit of cane sugar. The combination of expertly and locally roasted coffee and smooth creamy milk makes this a delight to enjoy. When you’re done your iced delight enjoy a fresh glass of mint and lemon water, a combination we’d never considered and now wonder why we don’t do it more often.

Careful walking the streets of Brussels, between the cars, bikes, people and various trams and busses, you’ve got your work cut out for you! But don’t let it stop you from getting to those places you want to see, just look both ways, and keep looking both ways.

Bikes Yield Brussels

While walking around we came across this quintessential shot of a Mercedes parked outside a lovely building. It could practically be an add for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

After half a day of wandering in and out of shops and down random streets and allies we finally arrived at this magnificent view of Brussels. Thankful we were there when the trees are green and the wind warm.

City of Brussels

If you visit Brussels you’re almost certain to find yourself at Grand Place-Market, if not, I’m really not sure what’ you’re doing wrong but try again. Many roads lead to Grand Place-Market and here you’ll find some grand architecture and a plethora of cafes and restaurants to sooth your sweet tooth and fill your belly. In the photo below people are setting up a small shop to sell fresh flowers and herbs in the square. It’s truly wonderful.

Antwerp, Belgium

If you arrive to Antwerp via the main train station you’ll be right here, if not make sure you take a quick wander through. The architecture and stunning grandeur are easy on the eyes and very enjoyable. Can you believe that the city once wanted to tear down this architectural landmark?! the people of Antwerp put a swift stop to that nonsense, and I thank them for it.

Antwerp Central Station

Once you leave the train station – continue to enjoy the gothic style architecture and colourful trimmings.
