This past weekend (March 6-8), David and I flew to Brussels, Belgium to spend the weekend with our friends/David’s co-workers. Three other people in David’s program with Nielsen are located in Europe for their last rotation. We are in Milan, Richard is in Brussels, Kevin is in Paris and Stephanie is in London (remember her gorgeous engagement session in NYC?). We landed in Brussels late Friday night and took a train from the airport to Richard’s apartment. On Saturday, we had a delish breakfast near Grand Place and then took a walking tour where we saw the big sights in Brussels. Our tour guide was so sweet and knowledgable. We saw so many great sights and gorgeous architecture! After the tour, we had lunch (waffles and Belgian fries) and then took the train to Atomium. It was HUGE! It was built in 1958 for the World’s Fair. We got to go inside and go up steep stairs to go between the balls. We took an elevator to the very top for a panoramic view of Brussels. On Saturday evening, we had a great traditional Belgian dinner (beef stew in Belgian beer) and then got some homemade Belgian chocolate for dessert. We ended the evening at Brussels’ most famous bar, Delirium, which offers more than 3,000 beers! Such a great day! On Sunday, we woke up early for an hour train ride to Bruges. This is such a romantic little city. It feels very much like Venice with all of the canals. We did a canal tour and got to see some beautiful sights. We spent our day wandering the city and found a great little place for lunch with the sweetest owners. On Sunday evening, we parted ways and headed back to our own European homes. It was a great trip!
