Belgium is a gorgeous country and it is saddening to know that many people have started avoiding Belgium because of the recent attacks in Brussels in March. See the beauty of Belgium in pictures.
Even though I was asked to skip Belgium because of this incident, I still went and I had a nice time roaming around four beautiful cities/towns in Belgium, I stayed in Brussels and went to Dinant, Ghent and Bruges on day trips.
When I went to Brussels, people were still recovering and tourism was down. But Bruges was as picturesque and beautiful as I imagined. The only problem was that it was still quite crowded around Bruges. Did you know that the entire historic centre of Bruges is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site?
Dinant was a pleasant surprise and I definitely recommend this beautiful town by the riverside. Ghent is similar to Bruges but a less commercialised version of it. Walk with my friend Rashmi through the historical centre of Ghent, Belgium.
I will be back in the future with more details. But for now, let me take you around Belgium in pictures. ( This is what I usually do if I don’t have time to write an entire article.) Enjoy the beautiful pictures.
Sorry for not posting for the past few days. But I have been having too many issues with Instagram over the past week. Hopefully it is fixed by now. So back to our theme of European #monuments. Pictured here is the Manneken piss statue. There are several legends regarding this small pissing boy. But did you know that there are two more additional pissing statues in Brussels.
I have been so busy with work, blog and studies that I have been quite inconsistent on Instagram. Hopefully that will change now and I promise to be more regular. Arcade galleries are quite popular in Brussels and this one the Galeries Royales Saint Hubert is the oldest built in 1846. I got my chocolates from here. Europe’s #monuments
I have to catch a flight in a few hours and I have not even started packing. Well anyway it takes me less than 15 minutes. I am off to Kerala to attend a wedding and I will try to post snippets from the Indian wedding on Stories. Everything is dependent on the wifi at the hotel. Moving on to our next city,Bruges. This is the first sight you see when you enter the gorgeous historic city center. It is a Unesco world heritage site and very few vehicles are allowed inside. Europe’s #monuments
