When I think of decadent chocolates, beers, top restaurants, vintage markets and medieval buildings, Belgium tops my list as a-must visit. This is my fourth time to explore Brussels and I never get tired of the attractions this cosmopolitan city has to offer. Two years ago when I was there in September, it was the yearly Car-Free Sunday where motorists are encouraged to give up their cars for a day. Car traffic not being allowed in the Brussels Region from 9:30 am till 7:00 pm. It’s almost surreal how good the feeling is walking along the empty streets. Numerous activities take place during the day like push bike riding, flea markets and street parties, it’s so much fun!
After spending a lot of time walking and exploring a city sometimes you just feel the need of a relaxing journey to your next destination. Although flying is the fastest means of travel to reach your next port, it can still be very tiring. Transfer to the airport, the rigmarole of airport checks and often long queues and delays can be energy draining. And when you reach your destination, often you’ll find the airport is miles away from the city centre and a new set of obstacles just to reach it.
