Brussels



I'm sitting in my big fluffy bed in Amsterdam with the tiniest bit of snow falling, it's almost noon here and I am having a hard time being persuaded to budge. It's pretty bittersweet, we only have two days left on our trip. In the beginning you think it'll never end but by the end you have no idea where the time went.

I really loved Brussels. It was a nice change after leaving Paris to be a smaller city with more casual, smiling people. One of Micha's good friends guided us around the city for most of our 2 days so we felt very at ease.























I think our favorite part of all of Brussels was having a late night beer at Toone, a 1830s marionette theater. Of course, street waffles were also a highlight. As were the fries. And the hot chocolate.

We're walking our feet off to keep up with our treats intake, both simultaneously indulging and exercising so in the end we're striking a balance between dead tired and supremely vegetable deprived. Micha went out last night to find a bag of carrots which did the trick just fine.

  1. That was our exact problem when I traveled with my sister earlier this year -- we were never getting enough vegetables. Under different circumstances we might have felt very sick, but like you say we too were in constant motion, so our bodies were a little more able to ignore the impending scurvy. (not that we actually got scurvy of course, but it's easy to get all dramatic in Europe)

  6. i was also surprised i didn't gain a single ounce while in amsterdam a couple weeks ago. all i ate was: cheese, frites, mussels, waffles, chocolate and beer, but we walked on average 6 hours a day. it's a lovely revelation. wished we could have made it to brussels + bruges too. your pictures are stunning!
