Daydream Adventure: Belgium

Please join me as my mind wanders to…

BELGIUM!

Belgium is Europe in a nutshell.  Don’t be fooled by its size, though, as Belgium offers something for everyone: over 200 museums, 300 art nouveau buildings in Brussels, 650 different styles of beer, and 2,000 chocolate shops! Let yourself be captivated by this Fairy-Tale-esque place!

I wanted to highlight some things that this lovely country is famous for. Of course, the three most obvious are…

Belgian Chocolate

Unlike wine, beers, and other fluids, Airlines have not yet regulated the amount of chocolate you wish to bring back state side!

Belgian Beer!

With over 450 different varieties, many Belgian beers have personalized beer glasses in which only that beer may be served. The shape of each glass enhances the flavor of the beer for which it is designed.  

Belgian Waffles!

But alas – there are MANY things to see and do in Belgium.  Belgium is fast becoming the destination in Europe for anyone seeking fun and adventure. Many travelers are flocking to places like Brussels, Namur, and French-speaking Wallonia for stylish, yet affordable hotels, chic shopping, gourmet food, exciting nightlife, and great adventure!

And who can forget this lovely beauty (actress and fashion icon) who hails from Belgium:

And what is a trip to Europe without a lil’ history?  Waterloo, Battle of the Bulge, WWI, WWII.

And I can daydream for days about living in one of these “Fairy Tale Castles!”

 *SIGH* – I do love to daydream…and I hope you enjoyed exploring with me!

My Daydream List is just that – a list of adventures and places that would otherwise fill my bulletin boards, drawers, and notebooks. It includes rugged terrain and serene beaches, oceanic endeavors and oriental exploration — anything and everything that makes my heart beat faster. It is not a bucket list, there is no box to be checked, or expectation to be filled. Instead, it is a list of opportunities, and I hope to take on several of them in my lifetime. ~Adapted from 4th & Flatiron’s Adventure List! She stated exactly what I was thinking!! ~
