I made a quick trip to Belgium right after Christmas day. It was cold, it was snowing – it was lovely. We walked a lot, ate quite a bit and drank a whole lot. Most of the trip was in Brussels and we spent one day in Bruges. I highly recommend going to Belgium for a quick trip, especially during Christmas time when London is quite empty. Brussels was filled with Christmas markets, lights and music – we had a great time. On our first day or rather, evening there, we stumbled upon this light and music show taking place in the main square. It was surreal and something I can say took my breath away!
Watch a little bit of this video and it will give you an idea of what was happening (try and ignore us yapping in the background!).
And heres a little more in case I did not completely ruin your new year resolutions yet.
After which we ate some more.
The cafe some some fun decor – teapots as lampshades.
We had some very good Ethiopian coffee in this little cafe…
Some sights while walking around…
…and some shopping!
Bruges was beautiful too!
And finally, some fashion – courtesy the ticket checker on the train! How amazingly cool is that uniform? I would love that hat.
Hope this post has inspired you to visit Belgium. I would love to go again in the summer.
