Last weekend my husband went to a conference in Brussels for work, and I tagged along. It was my 3rd time to Brussels and while I like the city, I admit you run out of things to do by your 3rd visit. There was a lot of wandering around, but we also visited the Musical Instrument Museum for the first time (if you are into World Music at all, you should visit) and I also went to Antwerp for the first time! I knew very little about Antwerp, but it is a lovely city and found out that I prefer it to Brussels. I met my friend Kim there. Kim is one of my oldest friends and she lives in Amsterdam, so it was easy for us to meet up. It was lovely seeing her again.
Here are a few of the photos from my trip:
Theremins and synths at the Musical Instrument Museum…
A Christmas tree made with bottles, because, why not?
Antwerp Centraal Station
I wanted one of these, nevermind they’re for little kids.
At the Fashion Musuem…
Wasbar, the landromat cafe
Inside the Maria Cafe…
….drinking Belgian beers.
Back in Brussels…
Babar chocolates!!! Babar was one of my favourite storybook characters when I was a kid.
The posh shops
Godiva praline hot chocolate!! ♥ OMG…
I bought myself macarons. 🙂
I took this photo through a window. Daniel and I were having coffees at PAUL and watching this street performer and his lovely dog. I was obviously more fascinated with the dog.
