Ok so Brussels. Definatly not the prettiest place I've visited but it has its ups - such as having a pissing boy and some giant shiny balls as its main attractions.
My first night I met Jeff and Lucy. We decided to go out and went to the restaurant described on the map as the place where the gay gentleman of the city take their mothers out before they hit the town. They had a whole selection of fruit beers so i gave peach and cherry a go. We then did a little wander around the city. Saw Mannekin piss which is basically just a little statue of a boy peeing and the Grand Place. Oh and of course I had myself a waffle with strawberries on top. Yummo!
The next day Jeff and I went and had Thai for lunch before going to see the big shiny balls. They are really known as The Atomium and represent an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. It was built for the World Exibition in 1958. Why you may ask? Honestly I have know idea but that was the general way things were in Brussels so I rolled with it.
After a stroll in a random park we headed back to the hostel and after consuming a feast of pasta, salad, bread and olive tapenade, we, along with Lucy we went to Delrium. It's a bar that has 2004 types of beer - its even in the Guinness book of recordsI tried Gonzo and Juju ginger. Jeff even had a litre of beer in a boot which was pretty impressive. My final full day in Brussels I dragged Jeff shopping and got a new bag as i my other one had been broken since switzerland, and had the worlds worst noodles. After saying goodbye to Jeff I got myself some vegetables for dinner because I have been craving them for weeks and after went for a walk with Lucy to get Frites and waffles!
Today I caught the train to Charleroi airport and then the plane to Espania!
