Belgium isn’t usually that high on most people’s European hit list, and that is a shame.
I spent about 10 months living in Belgium in 2009 and was lucky enough to be able to explore this tiny, yet intense country. Some things that struck me when I lived in Belgium was the friendly people, the imposing architecture, the delicious food, and how this amazing little country is still off the tourist radar.
Last November I got to share my love for Belgium with my husband and son, both of who had never been. We spent our time in my three favourite cities; Antwerp, Bruges and Brussels.
Grand guild buildings characterize the city squares.
Belgian beer is renowned around the world.
Belgium art is second to none.
Bruges is the Belgium of the north.
The festive Grote Markt all lit up during the holiday season.
Mannekin Pis is probably the most famous little statue in Belgium.
