It was my first time in Belgium, while my husband had been there before.
I must say... I was not disappointed.
I must admit that I have a weakness for cathedrals. I'm a big fan of Ken Follett, author of "The Pillars of the Earth".
So of course, I just had to visit the Cathédrale of Saints-Michel-et-Gudule.
The stained glass windows were incredible.
We stayed in the Saint-Catherine area, known as "the real stomach of Brussels" (according to Jamie Oliver).
This area has a lot of great restaurants.
La Marée. This one we stumbled upon by coincidence.
They had the most incredible fresh fish and mussels.
Great Belgium food.
Brussels is a great city to visit if you love architecture, art, chocolate, beer and good food.
