While I didn’t travel on the strictest budget of all time, by giving myself a little extra wiggle room I was able to really experience the country (and all of it’s delicious food) despite the fact that I was only there for three days (plus a half day after traveling there). I didn’t do as good as, say, my daily budget in Thailand would…

    I’m not going to lie. I didn’t fall in love with Brussels. Sure, it was fine, but it didn’t wow me or anything. After one full day there, I was more than looking forward to my day trip to Bruges. I set my alarm for early, early, early the morning I intended to go to Bruges. But, as usual, I didn’t actually make it out of bed until 9:30 or 10.
