A trip to Brussels

One of my favourite things in life is travelling. Getting to know new places, exploring cities, wandering in awe with my nose in the air… if I could I would be up & about every other week.

Of course this is not possible (sigh…), so I try to make the most of small holidays, long weekends and exploring my own neighborhood.

This time, Leo and I packed our bags and took an early flight to Brussels for a couple of days.

I’m a huge Magritte fan, so our absolute first stop was the Magritte museum, just outside the city centre.

Busy admiring and staring at the paintings I didn’t take many pictures. One more reason to go and visit if you’re in town 🙂 (also, if you’re under-26, entrance fee is only 2€!).

After a first day full of art, we spent the next exploring the city.

First: the big Basilica.

Although the wind wasn’t really on my side, we had a great time testing our photoshoot skills (we’re just beginners, but we’re working on it). After years of hatred for photos, seeing myself actually looking good is priceless. 🙂

Back from our walk we bumped in the Chinese New Year celebrations.

Colours, dancing, costumes, tai chi and pandas! It really made our day.
