Left London in the rain, and boarded the high-speed train to Belgium. When they say high-speed, they mean it!! Two hours later we were through the Chunnel, passed through the northern tip of France and slowed down for Brussels.
This city is amazing. Our hotel is right in the centre of the city, and the Grand Place square is about two minutes away. The buildings are absolutely breathtaking, and date from the late 1600's. There are a bunch of little cobblestone streets that all lead into the square, and we explored some of those. It is all lit up at nite, so we are going back after supper to check that out.
We stopped to rest in the square and I had the best hot chocolate of my life - those Belgians know their chocolate!
I have a feeling we are going to be walking around saying "wow" a lot in the next few weeks. The scenery has been amazing and the sense of history is like nothing we have ever really felt before.
We are really enjoying ourselves so far.....and we seem to have a pretty good group for the most part. Our tour guide Pia seems like she could be a lot of fun too. No one missed the bus today!!
Off to Amsterdam tomorrow!!
