Some food and beers of Brussels!!!
Ok. Yeah, I’ve been missing in action for a little while. Will try to post about the Brussels/Istanbul trip. I’ve been just so tired since getting back from Istanbul and then I’ve been getting some sort of allergy reaction since Istanbul (I’m thinking due to all the pistachios and nuts that I ate there) where I’m getting a bit of recurring hives for the past 1.5 half weeks. Getting better though.
So, Brussels…. I posted a bit before from my phone and it’s a very walkable city. As for sightseeing… probably not a whole lot to cover 4 days, but I managed to hit a Art museum to see the Rene Magritte exhibit on the last full day by myself and also toured the old underground archaeology site of the old palace (The Coudenberg). So, this next couple posts just contains the photos from that day as I walked about Brussels.
Cold rainy day in Brussels again… So we passed some time shopping. I’m a sucker for design and was looking for a small slim messenger bag that can just hold my Xoom, phone, and my trusty camera. Happened upon this bag (NAVA Bellows Ipad Messenger) at of all places an uber designer furniture store near the Grand Place. Just an awesome bag by an up and coming designer, Benjamin Hubert.
My sweet wife of course loved it as well but immediately proceeded to make fun of me right after purchase with ‘love your awesome new man-bag!’ Lol!
Got to Brussels and we proceedEd to take a 4 hour nap! Now we are drinking beer at Moeder Lambic along with some snacks!
on another trip. If I thought I was jet-lagged, I am going to be really screwed up after this trip! We leave tonight on a 2 AM flight to Brussels and stopping at Istanbul on the return leg. Brussels is a work trip for the wife, but we’ll have some time to relax and tour around. We are then hitting Istanbul for 4 days on the way back as a real vacation! Stayed tuned for some new photos… probably a lot of beer/waffle shots from Belgium and historical sites from Istanbul!
