Waterloo and Napoleon's Last Stand

Waterloo is a town in Belgium, about an hour's ride from the capital Brussels on board the bus W. It is a relatively quiet community with shops and points of interest that are within reach.

Waffles and Chocolate in Brugge

As I was navigating my way back to the train station, I found myself again in a heavy downpour that I had to immediately take shelter. I hurried down the cobbled street looking for a dry spot until I saw a quaint shop offering a cup of hot chocolate. I got in and instead of having a take-away, I decided to stay inside the cafe to keep myself dry and wait for the rains to stop.

Visita Iglesia the Brugge Way

One of the things I did while in Brugge was to visit churches and there were lots of them. Hence, the trip also turned into a Visita Iglesia.

St. Salvator's Cathedral

This is the first church you'll see coming from the train station and it's close to the city center.

Beautiful Brugge

Some say this place is over-rated; others say it's a tourist trap. But I just find Brugge beautiful and picturesque. I am simply drawn to its old world charm.

Of Mussels, Potato Fries and Beer

A visit to Brussels won't be complete without indulging in their must-eat dish moules-frites which means mussels and fries.

Mr. Romy Gle took me to Chez Leon, a very popular place to have moules-frites, so popular that it was packed and we thought we'd never get a table. Luckily, we did.

Choo Choo Train: Switzerland...Germany...Belgium

I love train rides. There is just something about it that makes it magical. The hustle and bustle when changing trains (hoping against hope that I won't miss my next connection). The beautiful architecture in every station. The different personalities I meet and the scenarios I witness during the ride. The scenery from my window seat while reading a book, listening to some music or writing on my travel journal.
