Jetsettin’: Bruxelles October 2013

travels

This post is a little late. But let’s face it, almost all my posts are late. I got mommy things to do!

A couple weeks ago, we went to meet my relatives in Belgium FOR THE FIRST TIME! It’s only a 2 hour train ride from where we are. Imagine my anxiety. It’s wonderful to know that we have family here but we did not know how compatible we would be with them. Thank goodness everything went flawlessly. Well, I shouldn’t say flawlessly. When we arrived at the Antwerp Centraal, we couldn’t find any reception or wifi so I could contact my cousin to let her know we have arrived. Soooo, we wandered around for about 35 minutes looking for reception/wifi until we gave in and went to buy a sim card. That was the biggest hiccup of the trip so I think that was a WINN!

Saturday, they were nice enough to take us sightseeing in Brussels or Bruxelles as the locals would say. Such an amazingly beautiful city! All the old architecture was breathtaking and so much character! The Mr and I always make fun of “character” and the hype around it but really, it was beautiful.

If this is just a taste of all the beautiful “character” I will come across during our stay, I am anxious to get to the other cities!!

Ok to everyone that was wondering and asked me to try out the Belgian waffles. I was gracious enough to go try it out for all of you and yes…IT IS WORTH ALL THE HYPE. I don’t know if it was because we were hungry from all the walking around that day, but o.m.g. YUMMS. I had the banana nutella and the Mr had the strawberry chocolate. He STILL reminisces about it. Can’t wait to go back for more!!
