Brussels, Belgium

Brussels has character. Out of all of the places I’ve visited, Brussels was the city I spent more time going to cafe’s and actually, shopping than anywhere I’ve visited in the last few months. The city has a flair for the arts scene and cozy cafe’s without being overwhelming.brussels11.jpgThe Grand Palace is without a doubt the best sight to see in Brussels. My friend and I walked around one of the alley ways from our airbnb and once we turned into this plaza, the view is breathtaking. I’ve seen this plaza many times in photos but, in real life the photos does not justify how unbelievably gorgeous this is in person.brussels10brussels9brussels14brussels26.jpgbrussels23.jpgTheatre Royal Des Galeries: I almost missed this area. Although, after standing in front of a store nearby, I saw people walking through it and knew what it was after peeking through. Good thing I did a small research of places to see before I came to Brussels, otherwise, we would’ve missed this area. It’s basically a line of different chocolate stores and cafe’s. We ended up buying some chocolates, of course 😉brussels25.jpgbrussels24.jpgbrussels18brussels17Who wouldn’t come to Brussels and not try the Belgian waffles? Maison Dandoy successfully fulfilled those needs for us. I ordered the Natural Leige Waffles with nutella. They were delicious! IMG_4430IMG_4449 copybrussels20Mannekin Pis: There are a lot of different stories about this statue about its significance. The sight of it made me cackle.brussels21.jpgIMG_4445 copybrussels22.jpgIMG_4454.jpgIMG_4590 copy.jpgCathedral of St. Michael and St. GudulaIMG_4478 copy.jpgIMG_4514 copy.jpgSquare-Brussels Meeting CentreIMG_4522 copyIMG_4501 copy.jpgRoyal Palace of Brusselsbrussels7.jpgGaufre de Bruxellesbrussels8.jpgbrussels6.jpgIMG_4474.jpgComic Strip CenterIMG_4596 copyThe Grand Palace IMG_4564.jpgIMG_4556.jpgbrussels2brussels3.jpgIMG_4592.jpgIMG_4388.jpgIMG_4591.jpgIMG_4381.jpgOur airbnb apartment
