I just booked an impromptu weekend away in Belgium at the end of November!

Anyone have Brussels tips!?

Didn't much like Brussels. The Grand Place is pretty impressive though. Could you make it to Louven or Bruges or somewhere like that for one of the days?

Brussels kind of looks like every European city ran into each other at speed. The Musical Instruments museum is cool, the Town Hall is not. I've spent a fair amount of time in Leuven, lovely town, Unesco heritage stuff in there and all. If Bruges is too packed it's a good place to go to.

But listen, it's Belgium, get drinking.

Wow thanks for being a MASSIVE DOWNER, none of you are invited to Brussels.
Hey now, Leuven is about 20 mins on the train from the city centre of Brussels, it's easy to get there.

Visit Delirium Village Brussels Beers in Brussels if you want to see massive fights breaking out at 2PM!


Srsly though, I love Belgium. I almost moved there at one point. I like the Use-It maps they have over there.

I went on a school tour there when I was about 12. Our guide spent a good 10 minutes raving about how we would absolutely love The Atomium. Then a teacher whispered in his ear that we were behind schedule and would have to give it a miss. So he started " ah but it's a bit run down now, there's graffiti and yadda yadda yadda".

I never did get to see it.

Go! Enjoy! Live the life that was denied me!
