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 :

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 😉

    What a pleasure to see you again at home!
    As you said we actually drove all around Belgium in 2 days.
    Such a small country..
    You haven’t seen everything OF COURSE but these kilometers allowed you to get an idea of what Belgium is.

    I’m now planning a few days, maybe a week in Switzerland in February. To see you and maybe others Swiss people I met in Perth.

    Happy to keep in touch. Talk to you soon.

    Chris

    Belgium is almost the same size than Switzerland, small country…do you remember our trip from Sydney to Cairns…how long was it 🙂 And your trip from Sydney to Perth…

    I’ll send an email soon to Janine and Karin, maybe they will be able to come too. We will see…I hope so 😉
