Where Have I Been?

...well I've been nowhere, right? Wrong! I've been in busy-land getting research done for assignments, organising holidays (not the fun part) and generally have been just occupied.

Now that's a mountain I'd like to tackle!

...but I've also been in Chocolat-land which is a far better place than the fomer!

I went on Saturday to Bruxelles (Brussels - the translation's kinda obvious I 'spose) & had a great time meeting up with a friend I made on my exchange to Belgium w/my school in Grade 10.

It was so lovely to see her, chat lots, eat lots of delicious chocolate and gaufres (waffles)!

Some hungry tourists enjoying the deliciously fresh and warm waffles.

"Maison J. Dandoy" - situated on aptly named "Rue au Beurre", this biscuit shop has the best speculoos in town.

Forgotten the name of this distinguished-looking man, but near the Grand Place, markets on in background.

The home of TinTin (cartoon billboard in the background) and new addition: Villo! bikes - Brussel's answer to Paris' Velib' bike system.

The beautiful Grand Place wows tourists on the sunny Autumn's day.

I hope you enjoyed the photos above of what I truly do consider to be the city closest resembling Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory!

Everyone's all smiles when chocolate's involved :-)

Where have you been?
