We spent the past weekend in Brussels, Belgium. Rob has a friend from the US visiting, and we wanted to do a short trip away somewhere. We wanted to pick a place we could travel to via train, but we didn’t want to go to Paris for the third time (you know, because after a while Paris becomes tedious, HA). So Belgium it was!
It’s funny how not a single English person I know has been to Belgium, despite it being less than two hours away by train. It has a reputation for being boring, but it was perfect for our purposes – shopping, eating and relaxing!
Like almost every European city, the architecture was just beautiful (prepare for picture overload!).
Now let’s talk about the food! OMG. You guys know I never hold back on holiday! Belgium’s famous dish is moules and frites (mussels and fries), which was awesome.
The waffles were amazing, which is saying something because I normally hate waffles! I actually preferred the waffle I had from the street vendor.
The pasta was also amazing…. sense a pattern here?!
With every coffee – or hot chocolate, in my case – you order, you also receive a mini waffle and a piece of delicious chocolate. I definitely had multiple cups because of it!
We also had to stop in a chocolate shop for the real deal. NOM.
I’ve been trying to buy winter clothes lately. Every women’s jacket I’ve tried on has been tight in the shoulders and arms (seriously, I look like the incredible hulk in the biceps!) but loose in the waist. So I did what any sane girl would do – buy men’s clothes!
But I did buy a gorgeous pair of shoes I have to share:
Have you been to Belgium before? Do you like waffles?
