Continuing along today with the April A-Z Blog Challenge and my travel adventures.
If you popped by yesterday, you know that during this months challenge I'm revisiting my teen years. The years my family lived overseas in England. I want to write down the memories of all the traveling and living we did during those years. So here we go!
B is for Belgium
I was fortunate enough to go to Belgium a few times while living overseas and was never disappointed. When we were overseas we had a revolving door of friends and families from the states coming to visit us. And on one of those occasions some close family friends hopped across the pond to pay us a visit. This was an exciting trip for me because their daughter was my best friend! And we had been devastated to have to part when I moved. So we jam packed a whole lot of fun into their visit. After tooling around England for the first half we put ourselves on a train to Belgium- specifically to Brussels.
We spent our weekend in Brussels but scooted over to some other cities via train each day. Day one was exploring our home base, starting with The Grand Place. This is the city center of Brussels and it's teeming with businesses and restaurants. With its stunning architecture and long history it's also a tourist hot spot. While we often like to try and scout out the "local" spots while traveling, we always hit the hotspots too. They're popular for a reason right?
