A little Christmassy trip to Brussels

When mum suggested a pre Christmas holiday back in November I jumped at the chance. What followed was a few days looking around European Christmas markets (they serve champagne and cocktails on their stalls), sampling Belgian beers, a Christmas parade which started out looking like a series of transit vans covered in LED lights and a Lego art exhibition. I will say this, Belgian food is awesome. If I lived in Brussels I would weigh approximately 20 stone from all of the amazing food, wine and beer available everywhere. The smell of the shops and market stalls just made me hungry and I felt permanently sleepy from the smell of mulled wine and other things in the air.

We did however, burn a good few calories ice skating. My Dad, who spent his teenage years at the local ice rink, put me completely to shame.
