You may or may not remember me talking about broadening my horizons in my birthday goals post a while back. (If not: catch up here if you want.) Literature, documentaries and classic films seemed like a good place to start, but I still wanted to do more than just sit at home. However, since traveling isn't an option for me at the moment, I kinda let that idea go.
A couple of weeks later, I found myself in Brussels accompanying a friend to an event. Historic buildings and musea popped up left and right, and suddenly it dawned on me what a shame it was that I wasn't familiar with my capital at all. What's even more is that I could sum up 10 Belgian must-sees in a heartbeat, but had I ever been? Well, no!
A personal project was born.
As little love as Belgians may have for their country, there are still a lot of great places to be discovered here. And I'm determined to actually go see them. The cool thing about living in this tiny country is that I can get anywhere in two hours tops, so I should actually be able to cram these trips into my planner on a regular basis. And having a willing travel companion with a camera isn't half bad either, so expect some reports on my microtravels here soon!
Well, the first one is already in the making, since I made my first trip a couple of weeks ago. I chose to return to Brussels, and while I'll keep the report and matching myriad of photos for a separate post, I'll leave you with some outfit pics of that day. I went for a shaggy jumper, my eternal black skinnies and boots combo, threw on this duster/trench coat thing, grabbed my backpack and voila: a tourist was born.
Alright, I think that was quite enough of me rambling. As always, if there's anything you want to share, you know where to find my comment section. Laters!
