belgium with eurostar
What a way to close summer right? Being whisked away by the EuroStar team was an absolute dream.
Our day started early, meeting at King Cross International Station. Here I was introduced to all the budding travellers, then provided with our tickets and a quick overview of our day ahead. After exchanging a couple of stories, laughter and we arrived in the Brussels.
Years ago as as teenager, I had the opportunity to be part of an exchange program in Belgium. Whilst living, and working in Brussels I had limited time to experience all the touristy activities. So this trip, was the perfect time to mark off the activities I wanted to do.
Immediately I was welcomed with fascinating architecture, and history packed into every street and alleyway. From the hidden away Grand Place in the centre of the city, to including in my favourite waffles at Maison Dandoy and stumbling across popular artistic murals. After all the fun, we returned in the first class carriage. All I can say is, it is definitely worth every penny. The food, ambience and service was exceptional.
Thinking of heading to European cities this summer? Then look no further, Eurostar provide affordable tickets, allowing to you escape London for the day or weekend.
Here’s a look at my favourite activities.
