BELGIUM + A VIDEO


in planning the trip i discovered that it would be way cheaper for us to go to brussels & then go to madrid instead of straight from edinburgh to madrid. so we decided to take the opportunity to make another little pitstop on our trip! when we told anyone that we were stopping over in brussels, they all would simply say "why?" & i was sort of confused by this reaction but once we got there i totally understood. we had two days in brussels & that was juuuuuust enough. i won't lie to you guys, brussels is not anything special, for real. it is a perfect place if you have one day or even just 1/2 a day, any longer than that.... eh. that being said! it is a cute little spot to visit, just know that you don't need a lot of time there :)we ate our weight in waffles & i got my frites i had been craving so badly. all of it was absolutely delicious. we took our time wandering the cute, cobbled streets & letting cedar just run wild & play at the park. 


& so that i don't keep bombarding everyone with trip posts, i'll share the video of our trip along with this post :)

  1. thanks for your honesty about brussels! although i'm sure we will make it there someday, it's good to hear people be real about what they liked & didn't like, for us future planners!

    and as always, all of your pictures are stunning. you have this way of capturing europe in your writing and photos that makes it seem.....relaxing. usually travel posts are like "omg look where i am!" "smiling so big by this landmark!" whereas you and your family just look so natural and at ease with where you are. it makes me want to go that much more!

  2. Man. I was born and raised in the UK so seeing anything to do with Europe makes me homesick. These pics are beautiful (especially the waffle one haha...looks so yummy!!!)
