België, Belgique, Belgien, however you say it, don’t sleep on this small country wedged between France and the Netherlands. The land of fritteriesschokolade, wafels, and spruitjes (that’s Brussels sprouts!) is perfectly balanced: culturally, linguistically, and FOODWISE.

Brussel, Bruxelles, Brüssel: #BXLOVE

This was the trip that almost didn’t happen. I should call my friend in Toulouse and thank her. I fell in love instantly. Dutch architecture, food that rivals anything in France, and friendly multilingual folks with a cheeky sense of humor.

Ixelles Ponds is the perfect backdrop to enjoy your afternoon eating a broodje while people watching. I suggest staying in Saint-Gilles for an authentic Bruxelles experience.
