We didn’t have a lot of time to spend in Brussels. It was the first stop on the Mongol Rally and we had the opportunity to meet with one of our online friendsCheeseWeb, a blog about Expat Life in Belgium. They served us a feast the night before and before we had to say goodbye, we took a walk around the beautiful city of Brussels in Belgium.
We had been to Brussels before nearly a decade ago. Sometimes time can play tricks on the mind causing memories to change with each passing year. When it came to the beauty of Brussels main square, that wasn’t the case. It was just as exquisite as we remember.
The Grand Place still stands as one of our favourite squares in Western Europe. There is something about it that takes my breath away when I step foot onto it’s cobblestone street.
The Grand Place is looking better than ever as it is being restored and the buildings are looking shiny and new.
It is abuzz with life. Artists and vendors are set up in the square, people are milling about and restaurant patrons are eating in the surrounding cafes.
I feel that this photograph captures the essence of the square as well as our travels through Europe this time around. We are constantly on the move and are traveling fast absorbing Europe’s beauty as quickly as we can.
