Brussel | Bruxelles

Brussels was another city where I briefly visited and the experience had me wish I stayed longer. Perhaps it was the sun-kissed, curving cobblestone streets or the ornately decorated buildings surrounding the Grand Place or the Belgium frites/frieten/patat I ate. It seemed like every restaurant had space for outdoor seating. Many of the streets in the historic district were pedestrian only, which allowed for the occasional band or group of singers to convene at an intersection and perform a few songs. Don't be surprised if you're confused on which is the main language in Brussels; French and Dutch are the two official languages, but you'll also hear English, Spanish, and German. So if you find yourself in Europe, add Brussels to your list of cities to visit. You won't be disappointed.
