My last minute escape from Paris has seen me end up in nearby Brussels. For the most part it has been grey and drizzling but the sun has made an appearance a couple of times.
We were able to see most of the city within the first few hours of arriving but spent the last two days exploring further out from the city centre. I was surprised to see the city is still as beautiful as I remember even though it looks like everything needs a good clean but it no doubt looks better in spring and summer.
Of course there is plenty to eat and drink – chips, waffles, chocolate, beer etc – all good.
I got a special deal with the Sofitel hotel which included a chocolate tasting which was delicious. We especially loved that Here are a few of my favourite photos of Brussels.
