Challenge Day 8: A Place You've Traveled

I've traveled more in 2010 than I have in my entire life. That's what happens when you move halfway across the world. :) Unfortunately, I still haven't taken any dream vacations yet but I did visit Europe for the first time. On our way to Africa, we had a 24 hour layover in Brussels, Belgium. We weren't there long but we did take advantage of the little time we had.

Here a few pictures of the beautiful architecture:

The Grand Place

The Saint Michael and Saint Gudula Cathedral

         It was built between 1226 and 1276 and it is absolutely breathtaking both inside and out.

There was a wedding going on while we were there, but the cathedral was still open to the public. The ceremony was in French so we couldn't understand much of what was going on but it was really neat to see.

During our short visit, we had some delicious food and yummy Belgian beer. My favorite thing of all was the way they served the coffee. Each person got their own little carafe. It was too cute- so I, of course, had to take a picture.

I'd have to say that my first visit to Europe was a success and I can't wait to go back!

I would have taken advantage of that too! I've only been to London and I loved it. I would love to go back to Europe!
