|Despite all the things Belgium is famous for, I didn’t really know what to expect when I first entered the country. I had always seen Belgium as very similar to France but with some Dutch influence. When I arrived though, I was blown away by the architecture, history and especially the food. How could I forget about the beer, chocolate and of course waffles! Belgium is more than 15 times smaller than it’s French neighbor, and when you consider that it makes it even more amazing how such a small country is famous around the world for so much. I’ve only made it to the capital of Brussels and their famous beautiful city of Bruges. When I return I’d like to check out Antwerp and Ghent, explore some of their Walloon areas in the south, and visit World War II sites.
