After getting off at the wrong train station and having to walk through the more grimy part of town, we eventually made it to the city center and saw that Brussels is quiet beautiful and quaint. I concluded it is pretty much a city filled with chocolate, lace, gold, beer, fries and waffles, which is pretty cool in my book.
We strolled through the Grand Place, had some sausages and fries, meandered through the winding, cobblestone streets, saw the peeing boy and also a shop that sold a real Nimbus 2000 for 320€. I engulfed a ginormous waffle complete with chocolate, whipped cream and strawberries.
It was a great day, and refreshing to hop over to a different country. However, we took the eurostar home, which meant going through customs and almost ending up in London. But whatever, that wouldn't have been such a bad thing :)
