Be Back Whenever

2/2024 – Brussels

We took the Eurostar to Brussels – only 2 hours. We’ve been to Brussels several times; just spent the day walking around the city. Stopped at Mannekin Pis, 2 churches, renovated Bourse that houses the Beer World Museum (We skipped that.).

The obligatory visit to the Mannekin Pis. If you get to Brussels, find the city museum where all of his costumes are displayed. He wears various clothes to celebrate different holidays.
Waffles that look like frites decorated with candy. We did NOT try them.
The Corne beer was pretty good even if Susan wasn’t too sure how to drink from the glass.
La Villette has yummy food and beer to go with each one. They are beer experts rather than wine sommeliers.
There’s a proper glass to accompany every Belgian beer. This was the recommended beer for my filet.

We woke up to rain and more wind. After breakfast, we took an Uber to the Centraal Station to catch the train to Bruges.
