Arrived in Brussels after 2 hour flight. Checked into hotel and headed out for lunch. In search of chocolate dipped Belgian waffles. 4 days in a row we have walked more than 5 miles. Today we hit 5 miles at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Brussels is an interesting city. Several streets are blocked off to vehicular traffic and around 3 o'clock in the afternoon, ...

Carlsberg Imported, 5.5%, well it's Carlsberg
Bruges Zot Lager, 6.0%, a local beer, a bit to hoppy for me
Maes Pilsener Extra ...
... it isn’t quite as touristy. Worth the trip if you are already in Brussels, in my opinion. We had lunch at this cute Thai-Indian-European fusion food place before heading back to Brussels to see Jessie off.
Saying goodbye to Jessie was sad, but we had a nice, full weekend and made the most of each others company! Jessie put it best: ”it’s not goodbye—it’s see you later!” I am so thankful to have such great friends and so ...
