Brussels, Belgium

My mom, my sister and I took an epic 3 week trip across western Europe in the summer of 2015 while I was between study abroad programs. The photos above are from around the neighborhood near our hotel in Brussels. We stayed at the Meininger, an upscale hostel chain that’s really popular for young people. Since there was three of us we opted for a private room to get our beauty sleep.

Nordzee

If you go to Brussels, you must eat at Nordzee. It’s a fish restaurant on the Place Sainte-Catherine. All their food is affordable and to die for! They have outdoor tables and you end up having to share tables with strangers which is a great way to meet travelers from all over the world.

We didn’t eat here but how beautiful is this building. Look at that lettering.

This square near the grand palace is lined with places to buy touristy waffles and chocolate. You have entered the zone of weight gain.
