Highlights from Europe: Brussels Edition

You can't go to Belgium without have their ever famous Belgian Waffle.  Move over Bruxie, this is the real deal!

The waffles were insanely delicious - just the right amount of sweetness delivered fresh, still piping hot!  Fruit garnish optional

You also can't come to Brussels without having Belgium chocolates

The famous Grand Place is the central square of Brussels.  Surrounded by guildhalls, the city's Town Hall, and the Breadhouse.  Pictured here is the Maison du Roi (King's House) or Broodhuis (Breadhouse)

This is the city's Town Hall



Friendly reminder...

The Atomium
This is an iconic building in Brussels built for Expo '58, the 1958 Brussels World Fair.

Inside the Royal Museum of Armed Forces and Military History was this grand Aviation Hall.  This museum looks so tiny from the outside but inside was a fantastic display of exhibits originally collected by an officer, Louis Leconte.  This museum definitely doesn't get as much credit as it should.

"Mussels in Brussels" completed the Brussels leg of our European trip.

Keep following me as I take you to the great City of Lights, Paris, next...
