Brussels… Sneak Peek

Sorry, y’all. No time for a full blog post.

We visited Brussels yesterday. It’s a big city. The capital of the European Union. It’s beautiful and, on weekends, quite full of tourists.

Here’s a quick sneak peek of the Grand Place… Brussels’ central market square.

The architecture in European cities is amazing. I could walk around just looking at building for days and days.

Really.

I’ll share more pics when I have time. I promise.

Today we went to Bruges, which makes Brussels look ugly by comparison.

All is well on the eastern side of the pond. Tomorrow, we head North across the channel. 🙂

    Capital? Please dear god no.
    “The European Union does not have a capital. It is an organisation not a place. Brussels, the capital of Belgium, is the city regarded as having its headquarters. This is where most of the EU institutions are based.”

    Sorry, Jack. I should have said “de facto” capital. Thanks for that clarification.

    I love old architecture so I am loving your Europe pics. I’d get lost just wandering around and looking up at all the buildings.

      Brandy, the brick work in Belgium amazes me. Everything is built with brick. The detail is very cool. Of course, I have pics to share. Just not a lot of time for posting.

    Bruges has been on my to-do list for years. I’m jealous.
