Roadtrip: Beautiful Brussels, Belgium.

Loved everything about this city. The people, food and tourist spots definitely make Brussels a must see for anyone planning to go to Europe.

Stayed in Hotel Aberdeen which was at the city center. Booked the hotel for only 49 euros.

We got there about 6pm so we quickly headed out to explore the city and find something to eat.

After dinner, we went ahead to see the famous Grand Place. It was voted as Europe’s most beautiful square and we can definitely see why. The place was amazing!

Afterwards, we walked to Delirium. This famous bar/cafe holds the Guiness world record for most beers available. Over 2000!

The next day, we decided to explore more of the city on foot. But before that, our friend Justin really wanted to eat Mussels so we ended up eating at this amazing resto.
