Belgium

Brussels, Belgium looked like it belonged in a fairy tale. The plaza is called the most “medieval square in all of Europe” because of the architecture of the buildings there. The ladies had a preppy sophistication to them and the square had wonderful aromas of Belgian beer, chocolates, Belgian waffles with strawberry sauce, etc.

We could have stayed all day in the plaza/square and continued to soak up the atmosphere but we eventually left to visit our cousin’s home nearby. At night, we watched him perform in a pub. This was a unique experience for our elementary school aged sons because they had never been in a bar at midnight!
