One of the places I visited this summer was Brussels, Belgium. I have visited this city twice already prior to this trip and I still enjoyed visiting it for the third time around. I went back to see this city because my cousins from the states came over to visit me here in Germany and one of the nearby city was Brussels. Belgium is famous for its delicious chocolates, waffles and beer – and its no wonder why many tourist visit this lovely country.
The first stop I wanted to take my cousins was the Grand Place. The Grand Place is a tourist destination and a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is the central square surrounded by the town hall and the Museum. Also, there are specialty sweet shops around the area, a totally awesome place for window shopping.
For lunch we went to Drug Opera restaurant, it is located near by the Grand Place. It is a great place for good pizza and drinks too. We sat outside the restaurant since the weather was lovely.
My favorite part of this trip was looking at the shop displays of sweets like pastries and chocolates. I bought some French macarons, chocolates and waffles. I wouldn’t mind going back to try out more of the Belgian chocolates!
