8 Things to do in Brussels, Belgium

While on a two week work trip to Berlin, I thought it would be fun to plan a weekend trip to Belgium. After all, I love Belgian beer and any chance to see another country. I booked a cheap flight for only approximately $40 leaving very early on a Saturday morning and returning late Sunday evening the next day. It was so worth it!

Even though it was extremely hot weather, I spent time exploring and walking around the city. Occasionally stopping in to the many churches in order to see the beautiful architecture and to cool down. Even though my trip to Brussels was only one full day, it was a success.
