Coming from the Netherlands I’m ashamed to admit it, but my visits to Brussels have been limited to a few trips to the Zaventem airport and back. This weekend, I visited a friend there and he showed me and another friend around a bit. I was surprised by how beautiful the city was! Somehow I expected a large city filled with grey buildings, but none of that was true. What I found were nice parks, beautifully renovated buildings, nice shops and squares filled with people enjoying the lovely weather. If that sounds good, I suggest you keep Brussels in mind when you´re thinking of your next weekend trip.
Even though my friends didn´t allow me to act like a true tourist taking pictures on every corner, I managed to take some.
