Anyway, I thought I'd share more about our trip to Europe today. Last week I talked about our time spent in Holland. From Holland, we went to Belgium, where we visited four different cities. Today, I'll talk about two of them.
We first arrived in Antwerp. We only spent one night here, so we didn't get to do very much. On top of that, there were a couple of unexpected closings that prevented us from seeing some things on our list.

|Our HUGE breakfast, minus the eggs because we already ate them.|
|The hubs wanted photos of all the different beers we tried---we were in Belgium, after all.|
|Because when you wait for a train in Belgium, you eat a waffle.|
From Antwerp, we took a train to Bruges. This town was so picturesque--I would definitely go back. Our Bed & Breakfast here was so charming, and our host was hilarious. I also got to start speaking a little bit of French in Bruges. We stayed here two nights and really had a great time. We ate our weight in chocolate, toured a brewery, visited a medical museum (because we're dorks), ran into a Picasso exhibit that we didn't expect (awesome--he's my favorite painter), rented bikes, window shopped, drank beer...

|Picasso! AND he's holding an owl! What??|

Stay tuned for Belgium, Part Two next week!
