After 2h20 of flight, we finally arrived at the Brussels South Charleroi airport, and one of our crew members lost the key to the padlock of his hand luggage. It's time to find someone to break the padlock somehow. At the airport exit, after asking at the lost and found area, we found the police. So he asked their if they could break his padlock, …
On our way out of Brussels we visited the Herge Museum. A very cool place; even the building itself is interesting - rather imposing. No photography is allowed of the exhibits themselves, so these photos are of the foyer and shop.
The displays rely heavily on the accompanying ...
... It wasn't quite the grand piece that I was expecting, but it's famous, so it has that going for it.
We spent most of the remainder of the evening relaxing and enjoying a few beers at a local pub. On the way home we grabbed another Belgian classic, a load of fries with various toppings. They were delicious to say the least.
The next morning a few members of our team went out on a morning adventure to see ...
... texts are free because we were in 6 countries that day.
We are a little obsessed with grocery stores, especially those in foreign countries. So we were delighted to discover our last rest stop - in either Luxembourg or Germany, who knew by then - had quite a large store and an actual bakery! Fresh bread by the loaf or baguette was available and while were were there a fresh batch came from the oven. We ate fresh warm bread with our favorite European butter as ...
... not disappoint!
so that's the Belgium recap. Miss Krys is currently on her way back to Canada which means I'm on my own for this last leg. The hotel room is quite quiet and it's going to be very different navigating transit systems and cruising around places without her with me. We had a fab few weeks together with lots of memories and loads of laughs. Miss Krys, I salute you! And I'll see you at kettle bells next Monday!
Next up for me...Eurostar! And ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsFlats Veronese Brussels
Our stay at Flats Veronese was quite great. We have booked 2 studios (28 and 35 sq. meters) and 1 apartment (45 sq. meters), but I'm going to evaluate only one of them (45 sq. meters), located on the top of the building.
I'll make a small review for the following categories:
APARTMENT: The apartment was a quite spacious duplex, with kitchen, bathroom and living room and of course room ( ). There's plenty of space for 4 persons in this flat, as the couch in the living room is a comfortable sofa-bed ( ). The kitchen had a microwave, toaster, water-heater, a stove and oven! The room is upstairs and has a big window on the ceiling of the building ( ) although with strong wind, there was bad isolation and the window opened a little bit (-), not critical though.
We had a small problem with the shower (the water flush was not wide open, but concentrated in a small part of the shower), but manageable for the duration of our stay (-).
There's also cable TV and free access WiFi (SSID and password available upon arrival) ( ).
CLEANLINESS: The room, the linen, towels, bathroom and kitchenware was very clean.
BREAKFAST: No breakfast! It's a flat not a hotel room :) If you want to have breakfast, go to the supermarket and do it yourself. It's cheaper, believe me. Brussels is a very expensive city.
STAFF: No staff at all. Although you can talk to the "manager" of the reception using the room phone or using your own to call the reception. I had the need to do it, and I was well taken cared of :)
LOCATION: It's in the European Union Quarter and a 5-10 minute walk to the Schuman metro station.
AMENITIES: If I'm not mistaken or confused, Flats Veronese has "a protocol" with a nearby hotel (Hotel Chelton) that allows guest to use their pool and gym. To be confirmed locally. We haven't used it.
OVERALL: It was a great place to stay and I recommend staying here when visiting Brussels. It's also a quiet part of the city... :)
