For our last day in Brussels we had another long lie in with the most comfortable bed before heading back to Paul for a repeat breakfast. For our final day we planned to hit up the shops for plenty of chocolate and sample some more beers.
First however, we decided to find the one sight we’d yet to see but heard so much about. Le Manneken Pis is a famous statue of a little boy pee-ing, which attracts huge crowds. Whilst slightly disappointing not to see him pee-ing beer, I’m glad we took the effort to go and find him.
Finding ourselves in an unexplored (by us) part of Brussels we wondered the streets and came across some brilliant street art and buildings.
We interspersed finding street art with dipping in and out of some amazing chocolate shops, that Belgium is famous for.
James and I walked away with hot chocolate, macarons and more chocolates than you could possibly need. It’s a good job so many were for presents, otherwise I’d need to be ramping up my exercise!!! The macarons however, worth every mile I’ll need to run to earn them. Honestly the best macarons I’ve ever eaten, and I’ve already googled how to get another batch!
The remainder of the afternoon before our flight was spent bar hopping and watching football for Super Sunday and a very relaxing way to end our weekend away together.
We’re already planning our next Christmas getaway for 2015. If you have any recommendations for Christmas markets in Europe, let me know in the comments!
