Belgium Chocolate, Belguim Waffles, Belgluim Beers... OH MY! Day 2

Day 2- We woke up at 4 a.m., got dressed, drove to the train station and jumped on a train to go to Belgium. First stop... Brugge.

Brugge, Belgium has to be one of my favorite places on earth.  It is so quaint and the people are lovely!  The town is filled with beauty and charm!

About 10 minutes into our trip,  I was in such awe of the city, that I wasn't paying attention to where I was walking. SPLAT... I fell off the curb and down I went.  I twisted my ankle.  But that didn't stop me, I waddled along the rest of the day!

The first stop we made was for Belgium Waffles and Hot Chocolate!  That will cure any injury AND Yes, I am officially eating my way through Europe.  After we got our tummies full, we headed to the canal for a boat ride.  The weather was perfect, a slight chill in the air and sunny skies.  The wind in our face felt so good!

We spent the rest of the afternoon, exploring Brugge.  We visited Chocolate shops, churches and museums.  There is so much to do and so much to see, that our afternoon just flew!  We stayed in Brugge until around 4:00 and then headed to Brussels.

Of course, we had worked up an appetite with all the walking so our first stop in Brussels. you guessed it... WAFFLES!

I have NEVER tasted waffles like you get in Belgium.  They are incredible and they melt in your mouth.  You see them everywhere, in restaurants, in train stations, on the street, and they call your name.  They are irresistible- definitely a red light food!

Next we headed to The Grand Place.  All I can say is SPECTACULAR!  Words just can't describe the beauty of this place.  I won't even try, I'll just post a photo!

We finished our day off with a Belgium Beer.  All I can say is Chocolate, Waffles and Beer... OH MY!
