Brussels, capital of European Union

Brussels is the capital of European Union, and the capital of Belgium. Brussels is home to the European Parliament and the European Commission, which brings professionals from all over the world. One of the main characteristics of Brussels is the multiculturalism, according to the official website of the city of Brussels, https://www.brussels.be/artdet.cfm/4389 , there are 163 different nationalities living in this city.

Different Antwerp – Belgium’s gem

Antwerp is astonishing. When people talk about Belgium, they either choose Brussels as the main city to explore and Ghent or Brugges to breathe the cultural air of a small town.

Bruges: Canals and Cobblestones

Bruges (pronounced “Broojh”) or Brugge, Belgium, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has something on offer for everyone: couples to revel in the romantic setup of canals and cobblestone walkways, solo travelers who love getting lost in a maze of narrow streets, friends who just want to hang out by the river and make music, the elderly to enjoy a late evening hot chocolate at the laid back  posh cafés and of course, for families, hell, because, it’s vacation!

Experience a new sense of taste

I’m sure as a traveler you are not only hungry for knowledge but also for real tasty food. Don’t worry after museums you can enjoy delicious meals, but before you need to turn into one of the Rolling Stones’ band members. You were probably asking yourself already, why the title of that column says that Rolling Stones will be jealous? So now it’s time to share my secret! Belgium is very popular for it’s delightful chocolate, so it’s a paradise for the choco-addicts. That country is full with plenty of chocolate stores, but one of them is not like any other. It’s crazy, it’s rebellious and it offers unexpected and unique flavors. They call the owner a rock star of the chocolate world, he calls himself “Shock-a-latier”. The audacious chocolate maker Dominique Persoone’s opened in 1992 his first shop “Chocolate Line”. Mr. Persoone can currently boast with 50 chocolatiers and a crazy invention special for Rolling Stones: sniffing chocolate powder. The mix of a ground dust of pure cocoa, ginger and mint catapults with the special device in your nostrils, to give you unbelievable fireworks of the flavors.

Belgium as small as it is

As I travelled already so many countries and still daily, people are asking me “Where are you from?” Belgium, and at their look you can see that they don’t have any clue where that is. Do you know that tiny spot near to Holland, Germany and France, I almost always say in the hope they can locate it. If you look at the world map you almost don’t see this country. But since it’s soo small you will have a good experience here since is easier to travel, because you could do all daytrips just leaving from the middle (Brussels). From one place to another will not take you a night bus (we don’t even have it in Belgium) it will normally take you around two hours to go from one place to another with car or public transportation. You also can easily do this by bike since this is not so hard.

Top 10 Things to Experience in Bruges, Belgium

My husband and I both love to travel so it was a natural decision to celebrate our “paper” anniversary with plane tickets. We spent seven days exploring Northern Europe, spending each day in a new location. During the planning stages of our trip, we focused mostly on famous tourist locations. We wanted a day in the British Capital, riding a red double-decker bus through the misty rain hoping for a glimpse of the queen. A day in Paris eating crepes, ogling at the Eiffel Tower, and looking chic in front of the fountain in the Place de la Concorde like Anne Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada. A day in Amsterdam strolling the bicycle filled cobblestone walkways while smelling the beautiful aroma of tulips wafting through the air from the Bloemenmarkt, the famous flower market, and visiting the harrowing Anne Frank museum. We knew we wanted to spend a day in Belgium, and although Brussels seemed like the most obvious choice, we decided we wanted a bit of a break from crowded cities. After a bit of research, we decided that Bruges, a medieval city in the Flemish region of Belgium, looked like a relaxing and picturesque location. What we planned on being the most low-key day of our vacation surprised us and became our most memorable.

Liège : A Little overview

The city that made my heart beat is Liège. She is located in southeast of Belgium, this little absurd land. According to the size of the country, we consider Liège and her two thousands hundred inhabitants as a big city. But regarding the world, of course, things are different.

Chocolate, waffles, and pubs

The thing about Brussels that you cannot see on the pictures is that the whole city smells like waffles. On every street, there’s a waffle stand or a chocolate shop (often there is both). Obviously, I have tried waffles and chocolate before, but the ones in Belgium are something truly different. Even store bought ones are amazing (and a little addictive I should add).

Weekend in Belgium

Weekend in Belgium One dreary evening in February, my friends and I decided to spontaneously take a weekend break to the land of beer, waffles, fries, and chocolate. I instantly fell in love with how surreal Brussels felt and how indescribable Belgium would be, with its winding and twisting roads and alleyways, multilingual and multicultural overall confusion, and laid-back people. Take a look at some of the hot spots in Brussels and Bruges that led me to put this country in my Favorites list after only one weekend.

First Experience in Hallerbos

I have lived in Belgium for more than 2 years and this Spring was the first time I have heard about the Blue Forest. When I heard about a forest full of flowers I really wasn’t too impressed. I didn’t understand why would anyone go see some flowers in the forest, I could not understand the craze. I thought to myself: it is one of those things where people try to make a touristy spot out of nothing and at least it is good that it’s not too far away, only 29 kilometres from Brussels.

Autumn in Leuven

When you plan a trip to or through Belgium chances are that you are going to visit Brussels (home of the European parliament), Bruges (famous of the film “In Bruges”) and Antwerp (the Diamond city), but I invite you to hop on a train in the direction of Leuven and travel 20 short minutes east of Brussels. I am going to take you on a tour visiting the places that became points of reference for me in this frequently overlooked Flemish pearl. Leuven is my alma mater and one of the most enchanting little cities in the world with some stunning UNESCO heritage.
