, Brussels,

I know my one 3 hour experience in Brussels in no way can be applied to the entire city or the time I would have had if some of the details had been a bit different

Anyway. My goal was to get into Brussels early in the morn and do this 8 stop beer tour I had found. Sounded cool and an easy way to not spend too much time in Brussels.

So my 15 min tram ride to Ghent central station turned into a 2 hour turnaround. I originally vote on the wrong trAm then was told to get on the wrong tram by the conductor. Oh well so now I'm in Brussels by 12.

Get to Brussels and take the metro to my hostel which was the ghetto. I honestly felt unsafe. And was not planning on drinking beer and walk around where I felt like I could be jumped at any sec. So I walked to my hostel and canceledy reservation and went back to central station. Couldn't find any other hostal to stay at in Brussels but found one in cologne. So just decided to come here a day early.

Oh we'll beer tour. I'm sorry I bailed on you. :(

Funny I was thinking earlier in the day that I hadn't had too much travel hiccups up to this point. Will not say that again. This one wasn't too bad though. :). It all worked out
