Goodbye Europe!

August 10, 2012

It is officially my last day in Europe, which is bittersweet. I'm excited to see my next region, but sad to be saying goodbye to another beautiful place. The last stop in Europe was spent on a 3 day trip to Brussels, Belgium. I got here via a 264km train ride (in the Chunnel) directly from Paris to Brussels which only cost $42 and was only 1 hour and 22 minutes. In brussels I saw the manneken pis, a funny little statue (picture below) and at night I saw the town hall, which glows beautifully at night. The next day I spent a sweet afternoon at the Chocolate museum, lots of yummy belgian chocolates. Then for dinner I went to a restaurant called L'ogenblik, which had a large variety of seafood, my favourite! I also went to a place to pick up Belgian chocolate for my mom, because I'm going to be meeting her at my next destination.
Overall, Western Europe was an exciting place with lots of delicious food everywhere I went. I'm definitely glad I came and will probably be back to explore the other countries that I have yet to see.
