Christmas Markets in Brussels - 28 November 2014

What started off has a thrown away comment about visiting a Christmas Market in europe with my cousin, ended up with 5 of us planning and going over to Brussels for the weekend, and what a weekend we had.


So our adventure started at London Heathrow - Terminal 5


James with his cousins


me and Jame on the plane



Our hotel - which was lovely




and round the corner from the European Parliament



Having brunch a local cafe




On the Saturday, we took a train to Brugge (yes it is spelt like this) and the crowd were just what we expected, which just added to the enjoyment of being there.


Brugge


Stopping for lunch - I just had to have a large beer !!!




Now which is the right way - lol x


Do any of the UK readers remember C&A back in the day !!! couldn't believe it still going strong in Belgium.



Love the look of the roof tops around the square (Brugge)




James enjoying a wraffle !




Back in Brussels - on the hour from 5pm to 11pm they have a fantastic light and music show at the Grand Palace, it was truly magical and one I want to see again !




On the Sunday morning, we got a taxi back into Brussels and the taxi driver was good enough to stop so that I could take a photo of the Palace.




James at the famous Manniquin Pis statue in Brussels.  It only a small statue but the whole area was crowded and worth seeing a local attraction.

We had a fab time and wanted to spend longer.  The Christmas market is very similar to the large one that is here in Birmingham, UK, there are a few different stalls but they seems to have exactly the same products in both.  It was a lovely experience and Brussels is definitely a place I want to visit again.

I trying to get my blog posts unto date before the end of the year, so expect a few over the coming week.

Thanks for stopping by.
