Mid-November we decided to take a trip to Brussels, Belgium. Our time left in Europe is limited and we've been bit with a travel bug to see what we can - and a city known for chocolate and waffles? Yep, it topped the list. The flights getting there weren't too bad, but we ended up having a layover in Amsterdam. Fortunately our lounge access allowed us to relax and catch our breathe between flights. 

We landed Thursday evening and after a bit of a mix up getting on the wrong train and ending up halfway to Antwerp, we finally made it to our Air BNB apartment and got settled for the evening. It was a perfect location and setup and we really enjoyed it. We had plenty of space for the girls and our strollers. And with views like this around the corner? Amazing. 

The next day we headed to the Hop On, Hop Off bus. It was the quickest way for us to get around to the sites we wanted to see and to get some history on the bus. We hopped off at the Atomium and Mini Europe stops for most of the day. 

The next day we took the other line for the Hop On, Hop Off bus and visited Autoworld. Jason and Madi had fun looking at the cars they had on display!

The next day we hopped on a train (the correct one this time) and went to Bruges. It was a beautiful little town and we had a lovely time walking around the city and enjoying it. Madi and Daddy even got to go on a carriage ride around the city and Madi helped feed her horse. She was in heaven! They also had some amusement games and rides setup that she enjoyed. 

Monday was our last day in Brussels so we made sure to visit the Chocolate Museum and do some chocolate shopping. I'd say we were successful. ;-)

But my favorite thing about Brussels? Hands down this - hanging out with my crew and eating these every.single.night.
