This week I talked about Brugge as a ultra popular tourist destination in Belgium. I enjoyed Brugge once I found some quiet neighborhoods on the outskirts of town, but I found other small Belgian town like Leuven even more enticing. Leuven is home to Belgian’s oldest university. This population of students brings a creative, vibrant, youthful feel to this small city. Just a short 30 minute train ride from Brussel, it has a completely different feel than Brussels. The first thing I noticed were all of the bikes and the next thing I noticed were all of the bars! After all, Leuven is also the home of internationally known Stella Artois beer.
For this Photo of the week, I chose to show you multiple photos of the ornate city focusing on the buildings around the Grand Place. This was one of the most beuatiful town halls I saw in all of Belgium!

Love Brussels Food?
One of my good friends & former Brussels expat, Alison, spent years researching the Brussels food scene – including waffles! She wrote a guide to the best food in Brussels – a must have item if you are traveling to the region!
