Surprise Trip to Brussels

Mr. S organized the most amazing amazing Birthday surprise ever by taking me to Brussels for a couple of days. I even got to go on the Euro Star, which was fun since I've never been on it before. It was a fun two days and we managed to see and do loads of things. We both dislike doing anything touristy (if that is a word) & are always looking for off the beaten track things to do when we visit a new place.

Here are the Top 10 things that I loved about Brussels:

1. My favourite part of the trip was the museum of comic art which has an amazing collection of original comic strip art including Tintin, Asterix and the Smurfs.

2. Dining at the fantastic French restaurant Quincaillerie. Which was once a hardware store. Their food is to die for. It was a complete visual and culinary treat! A definite recommendation.

3. Mussels, mussels, mussels - Just couldn't get enough of the different ways they cook mussels.

4. Walking around randomly & discovering interesting bit & bobs.

5. Trying out all the different Beersssss & eat Frites. One of the beers that I tried had 11.5 percent alcohol content!!!!! Was really really potent!

6. Take a ride on the tram. I loveeeeeeeee trams and took a million pictures. Just resisting uploading all of them. :)

8. Walking around the artistic St. Gilles area especially discovering the two medieval prisons close to our B&B
7. Checking out all the Art Nouveau buildings including the Museum of Horta. I was soo bummed that we couldn't take any pictures inside but I've taken a few from the outside on my Lomo camera so hopefully I'll get some nice shots out of that.

9. Waffles with chocolate & cream

10. Travelling on the Euro Star :)
