Motorcycle Wanderings, General Travel, and a Weird Mix of Other Stuff

Whirlwind Tour of Europe’s Most-famous Sites

Annelies wanted our first full day in Belgium to be interesting, so she planned a special outing for us. A tour of sorts that would provide opportunities for photos of big and famous stuff.

We moseyed around there a bit, taking in things like this little waffle truck.

Belgians don’t eat waffles for breakfast. That’s snack food.

We were hungry for lunch, so we skipped the waffles and chose a little restaurant with some unusual decor.

    Is that a mini golf place with all the famous building? For some reason I expected to see a putter in your hand, lol.

      Brandy, no golf. Just a collection of models to entertain tourists like us.
