on my way from london to our next stop, i had a four hour layover in brussels (the boy took a different, direct flight). i figured i had enough time to get into the city to explore and eat a waffle and then back to the airport. i hurried as much as possible through customs and scurried to the train terminal and hopped on a train to brussels central station. by the time i got to the center of the city, i had just 45 minutes before i had to turn around and go back again. it was a little crazy, but totally worth it!
i had been in brussels once before – on a day-long layover to kenya when i was thirteen – but i forgot how magnificent the main square is!
i wandered the streets a bit in search for a just-right belgian waffle. i remembered how incredible these were from my last time in brussels. but they were even more delcious than i remembered!
of course i also had to have some belgian chocolate while in belgium! chocolate is everwhere in the streets of brussels!
i got to the train station just in time to run straight onto the train headed back for the airport – phew! that was a wild and wonderful few hours! and three countries in one day?! i’ll take it!
