Wanderlust: Belgium








Did you know that what we call "french fries" actually originated in Belgium? I've never been to Belgium and while I'm a bit embarrassed to admit it, I've never really considered traveling there either. After a bit of preliminary research, however, it seems that Belgium would be a great way to experience a more authentic Europe without the onslaught of tourists that more popular cities like Paris, London, and Barcelona experience.

Have you been to Belgium? What is it like?

You would LOVE Brussels! The city square is breathtaking and you can't take one step without buying and destroying a waffle, and then buying another right after. Followed by Frites! One of my favorite cities for sure!
