I have been in Beligum for 5 days (Tuesday to Sunday), my first trip in Belgium !
I worked during two and half days for Brussels Expo, in Brussels 🙂 Brussels Expo is the biggest exhibition centre in Belgium, only 15 minutes from the center. I saw one impressive thing and one funny thing there :
- Atomium : a famous monument in Brussels, near Brussels Expo. It looks like a big atom, very impressive. I was lucky, because it was renovated recently (before renovation, after renovation).
- A very small copy of the Geneva Water Fountain : always funny for people of Geneva to see a water fountain 😉
Like all good tourists, I had to try one special and famous meal : Mussels with french fries. So with my colleagues, we went to the center of Brussels on Thursday night.
Brussels is a very nice city, with many many European tourists, but not only them, also few Asian tourists, especially the Chinese as well 🙂
All good European people have to go one day on a pilgrimage in Brussels, like all good Christian have to go in Rome or Lourdes 🙂
On Friday afternoon, I was on weekend. I met again my best friend in Australia : Chris 🙂 ! He invited me in Belgium. It was a great weekend, we visited many cities (Brussels as well, but also Bruges, Knokke and Antwerp). We spent two good nights and drunk many beers in Huy, a small town near Chris house.
I really liked Antwerp. We were only few hours by night, but the ambiance was great. So I hope I will be able to visit again this city !
You can find four new galleries about Belgium here. Few pictures are out of focus, by night it’s quite difficult with digital cameras …sorry for that !
I especially would like to thank Chris ! I spent great time with him. He drove many kilometres around Belgium. Very interesting to speak again him, to drink again many beers and to visit many cities. I also want to thank her sister for her cooking.
Chris : don’t forget to come soon in Switzerland, you’re welcome when you want ! Try to book few days this winter, I would like to show Swiss mountains 😉
