Onthaal aan België!
My past few days have been spent having a wonderful time soaking in the atmosphere and charm of Belgium’s city of Antwerp. I’d never been to Belgium before (save for driving through it in a school trip coach) so I was happy to give the country some deserved attention and spend four days there finding out what all this Belgian waffle fuss was about. I can tell you now, I wouldn’t go there just for waffles even though they are so delightful! There were bicycles and small dogs everywhere, beautiful architecture and the whole city was noticeably easy to navigate/wander around which made it all the more charming.
The reason for my visit? I went with university friends for a very reasonable price and obviously wasn’t going to say no! It was one of those lovely school-trip sorts if trips where I explored in the day with my best friend and then met up with the rest of the ‘class’ in the evening and we all bonded that bit closer – it was very heart-warming! I’d definitely come back to Antwerp as I’m making it my mission to discover every worth-while street and cool shop and to definitely hire a cute bike or hob on a tram – my legs are now paying, I’m all walked out! More pics to come! Have you visited anywhere in Belgium?
The Chocolate Line – an enchanting shop where you can watch the Chocolatieres making Easter eggs!
