UNESCO World Heritage Listed sites, war memorials and perfectly intact medieval towns are just a few reasons to love Belgium. I came for the history and stayed for the waffles, frites and beer!
Beautiful Belgium. A country truly like a fairy tale.
I cannot express enough how much I loved the very short time I’ve spent in each of Brussels, Bruges and Ypres in this amazing little country. I first visited Bruges and Ypres in 2016 when I spent three weeks in Western Europe in between jobs and again as part of my Thalys Explorer trip when I finally made it to Brussels.
I explored the perilous history of Flanders Fields in World War One in and around Ypres.
Then I wandered back to Bruges to roam the UNESCO World Heritage Listed medieval town filled with cobbled streets, climb the Belfort and eat some frites.
On my next visit I roamed around Brussels spectacular Grand Place and fell in love with the beautiful Galeries Royale Saint-Hubert.
There’s nothing quite like strolling amongst the historic neighbourhoods of Europe’s most beautiful old towns and fairytale villages.
There are so many royal palaces and castles in Europe to visit across many countries. Enjoy experiencing a day in the life of a royal by exploring these beautiful palaces.
