... Brussels to Amsterdam for today, let me know!) but the thought of chocolate and waffles and North Sea cycle route has swayed us, and the other reason of not being able to get our bikes there! We found our hotel easily and set off to find dinner. We passed lots of fresh fish places that cooked the fish for you, and we thought we'd give it a go. But none of them had any prices listed and we had very limited Euros. So ...
... satisfied, spirits lifted and slightly ******. Not sure if this was due to the fact we were hungry or tired or both.
After lunch we grabbed our bags from the car and went to our hotel to check in. Room was good, settled in, had contact with the internet, and fell asleep until 17:15. Read some 'God is not Great' and showered then headed back out.
We headed in another direction of town and found a huge Cathedral and modern square. Some more impressive architecture and ...
... fountain that Anna had quite the emotional experience over a street waffle. 1 Euro for some sugary goodness, and she went back demanding more. Almost literally.
After our waffles, we took one final look at a main square, which was so ornate I could not believe it, and then flew down to the North railroad station to make our way to where my heart still is- Paris, France. See part 4 for more.
See you next time!
... the books. Although we didn't care a ton for Brussels, we instantly fell in love with Amsterdam and it made the whole trip worth it. After constantly going for 2 weeks strong now (Spring Break and now this trip), I am SO ready for a break! Krysta and I are off to the beaches this weekend for a day of relaxing and getting sun. It's especially nice since the forecast in Granada this week is high 60s and 70s everyday without a drop of rain in sight! It's about time!!!!
... get the whole thing in one shot :( Then we figure out how to get home. Pass by the Collumn of Congress (we passed yesterday) to a picture - check out the sky. The weather is clearing now and instead of grey the sun is coming and its like about 6pm. Im nackered. Not really coping with this cold. It was about 0C when we left this morning and then got to maybe 12C. But its been a great day... Brussels is UGLY but its growing on me.
