Travel Recap: Brussels



Throwback Thursday. I won't say much today. Here's a collection of images from a summer road trip in  Belgium with a stop over in Brussels.  The sky was a bit grey during our visit, but it didn't stop the large groups of tourists from exploring the beautiful square.

History has it that Brussels was under siege by foreigners in the 14th Century and the attackers had planned to destroy the city walls with explosives. A little boy named Juliaanske from Brussels happened to see it. He urinated on the burning fuse and saved the city. On some occasions the statue is dressed in a costume.




 Fancy a Belgian beer break?
