Travel Post: Brussels.

Heyyyy guys!

How you doinggggg? (Can you guess someone is feeling good?)

I was desperately craving an escape ‘cos I was up to my neck with work/school etc and this window to go to Brussels (Belgium) for the weekend with 7 of my friends and classmates came up and I was definitely up for it.

We found some incredible deals on Ryan Air (for the flight) and Air BnB (for the accommodation) – incase you’re in Europe and have plans to travel, check them out.

So, this post is quite interesting because a couple of days before we were meant to leave for Brussels, it was announced as highest alert of imminent terrorist attacks after the Paris incident. Following this announcement, a couple of my friends backed out and decided not to proceed with the holiday.

Naturally, I followed my instincts – which meant I was going and thankfully, there were no attacks although all the metro stations were closed down we were warned sternly on Sunday evening not to go anywhere after dinner.

Anyway, it was a pretty short trip but it was great for my brain as I was very close to folding and staying in a permanent fetal position on my bed for a foreseeable future.

I did not take a lot of pictures but see some below:

Belgium has the absolute best beer. I tried Jupiler and Westmalle.

They should have a public holiday for their waffles.

These buildings had such gorgeous gold detailing that is almost not visible in pictures.

I never got to go to a lot of places cos of the lock down… Like the huge “manneken piss” statue. Here’s hoping I get to go back soon!
