On the way home from Amsterdam, we transferred trains in Brussels. Why not spend a few hours exploring? I'm glad we did, because Brussels is wonderful. But, we were so tired and didn't really have enough time to relax and enjoy. Not to mention the EuroStar station is a 20 minute not-so-scenic walk from the city center.
But, when we walked out into the Grand Place, which is a huge cobblestone square, it took my breath away. I had a moment, in spite of being exhausted. I can't even describe the architecture.
I think Brussels would be perfect for a relaxed, romantic one or two night getaway. It's only a few hours from London on the Eurostar. I would suggest you splurge on a really nice hotel, stroll the streets in the evenings in search of a wonderful meal, relax and enjoy. (TE, if you're reading this, that's a
subtle hint just for you.)
I really love seeing how each European city we visit has it's very own style and character.
I hope you enjoy the pictures. They are some of my favorites. I took all the of them with the Nikon D90.
