Belgium initially wasn't on our itinerary at all. But as we had a 10-hour flight connection in Brussels that allowed us to visit the country's capital - we thought why not? It's good to see yet another country.
Brussels was a nice and neat city, but it wasn't something that would charm me enough to want to go back there again. The architecture is lovely, the restaurants as well as beer bars are great and the chocolates... good, but simply overrated and overpriced. Brussels is a perfect place for a weekend city break, but nothing more.
In the future, we'd like to also see Bruges and other smaller towns in Belgium. Meanwhile, have a look at how many places you can see within a day in Brussels:
