Well, Alex and I have just returned from 3 weeks in Europe! Boy was it an adventure. I have a whole ton of pictures to go through but I'll post some quick ones here, broken down into sections of the trip. First up, Brussels and Brugge:
Here is a shot of the place we stayed at in Brussels; large, open, and bright!
One of the massive buildings at Grand Place
A church just up the road from where we stayed
Pretty awesome detail
we made a trip out to see the Atomium, because why not?
Another awesome church on our way back from the Atomium
Very modern stained glass in this one
We did try macarons; I'd never had one before. Pretty tasty
The best thing was the waffles! This was at the Haagen Dazs cafe
Lovely door in Brugge
the streets of Brugge
Rain clouds rolling through the main square in Brugge
Fall was coming right along in Europe
climbing up the Belfort Tower in Brugge
More waffles in Brussels. This was a speculoos waffle, OMG
On our tour of the Cantillon Brewery
That's a lot of lambic!
Here are some of the different gueze we tried
Here's an old cafe we popped in, as recommended by some other American we ran into at the Cantillon brewery
I think what I got was a hot chocolate
Some of the beers we tried...notice "Cookie Beer", based off Speculoos cookies. It was weird
Last night in Brussels, we got some Belgian chocolates. Above is a Speculoos ice cream thingy
This was the massive door to the courtyard into our place
