    Last day in Brussels

    February 7 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    So that's my last day in Brussels before I head of tomorrow onwards to Bruges. It was spent walking around and enjoying the relaxed vibe of the city.

    Not really sure what to say about Brussels it's super different to anywhere I have been. One minute your in the most incredible old traditional square surrounded by tourists, gold plated buildings and chocolate shops the next your in the metropolitan shopping street surrounded by new and high rise buildings and development.

    It's a super cool place to be and I loved having a night out last night, met some cool people, practiced my Spanish a bit and got by great however the Belgian beer was a tad strong and I slept until like 11am 😂😂.

    People are lovely and friendly as well and the trams are pretty cool to be fair. Also so many Irish bars!!

    All round a lovely place to see and spend time. Looking forward to meeting a friend tomorrow

    Last day in Bruges

    February 9 in Belgium ⋅ 🌬 13 °C

    Another amazing day in this beautiful city. I recommend you visit. Stunning architecture, history, beers and chocolates. You could walk around here for hours and never be bored.

    Spent the morning at the beer Museum and of course had to sample 3 beers..... It's a hard life. Took some selfies haha.

    Also had a chance to catch up with Dana a friend and colleague from Lanzarote which was lovely, had a bit of lunch and a good chat.

    I love it here and I will be back for sure.

    Daytrip to Brugges

    July 23, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 35 °C

    Found our way to Bruges on the train a mere 25 mins away.
    Much quieter and quainter that Gent. as we explored the cobbled streets and market squares. Found a fab little place for breakfast.
    Energy levels low today so explored the Belfry and the Cathedral but didnt partake in any museum visits or other tourist activities. Really hot at 30 C - why don’t Europeans have air con?? It’s sweaty madness.
    Back resting and watching Tour de France before another big night out tonight - off to the final performance of Hendrik and Steve followed by an after party- another late one. We r on our knees!!

    Dont get to a magician show too late

    July 20, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Arrived in Ghent off the Flibco bus and dropped our bags at Hendrik’s show venue. Then got caught in a thunderstorm so threw ourselves into the nearest cafe. Had 2 coffees before we felt slightly human again and then set off to see a bit of Ghent which is packed with people for its annual 10 day festival. Full of music, shows, street performances etc.
    Ghent is a beautiful city and a bit of a surprise.
    Had dinner at Steve’s and then they announced at 10pm we were not off to bed we were off to a magician show!!!
    We got here with 2 mins to spare and the only seats were in the front row!! A very intimate, slightly weird but amazing card trick show with slightly too much front row audience participation later we left into a heaving night scene of festival Ghent.
    A gin and a long walk home along the canal we finally got to bed at 1am!!! So knackered. This European living/ going out at night is going to take getting used to!!

    Bookings and Belgian Waffles

    July 8, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Today didn’t go quite as planned as we checked out of our Grand Place apartment and into a hastily booked new apartment...... only to find T had not realised the booking made last night was for 8th -10th.... of October!!! The lovely staff member gave us some free wifi to be able to book something necessary for tonight and tomorrow!!
    The day was made better by a “private tour” of the city by the wonderful Hendrik and Steve where we learnt the country’s National symbol is the fountain of a small fat boy peeing out of a v small penis!! Many tourists come purely to see this insignificant fountain.... we moved onto the Belgian Waffle House for waffles and beer!!! Lovely to catch up with Hendrik and meet Steve and learn random facts re the city’s history and buildings

    Floreffe - Esperanzah Music Festival

    August 3, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Cyril kindly picked us up from Lille by car and in the afternoon we went to a nearby village, Floreffe, for a world music concert in the grounds of the old abbey. It was such a memorable experience - the setting was spectacular and the range of live music, food, beer and entertainment created a great vibe (over 36,000 people attend this festival). We loved every minute of it - thank you Cyril for sharing this night with us.Read more

    July 22, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    We made it back into town for the 11pm fireworks to celebrate Belgium’s National Day before enjoying more of the festival’s music.
    On the way to the last tram we stumbled across a silent disco by the Cathedral. Kate has her first taste of dancing to ur own tunes... luckily for us there was only 1 to listen to! Another great night thanks to Hendrik and Steve. Finally got to bed at 2.30 am!Read more
