Brussels, Bruges, Ghent
After a dreary couple of weekends in Luxembourg, we decided to spend a long weekend in nearby Belgium. The border of Belgium is only 15 minutes drive from our place in Lux, and we regularly go there for typical Saturday errands. But this weekend we decided to venture further out and explore the Belgian trifecta of Brussels, Bruges and Ghent.
We decided to spend the weekend in Brussels, Belgium which is known as the land of blonde beer, chocolate, waffles and fries. We drove for about two hours early Saturday morning to Brussels, passing through rolling hills and vast fields and farmlands into the capital city, where we immediately noticed huge parks with lakes, people exercising and lounging outside despite the cold weather and a plethora of waffle food trucks.
