Antwerp - A photo diary

Like I said before there's not a hell of a lot to see or do in Bruges. After a few days you've seen the whole city so we decided to book ourselves on a little day trip to Antwerp. It's only around an hour and a half away from Bruges and so simple to get to.

It's a lot bigger as our B&B hosts informed us - 500,000 people rather than the tiny 20,000 who live in Bruges. It has a lot of shops which is fantastic if you have money to burn but alas we didn't so went in search of some food and a mooch around the sights. The Christmas market was fantastic. The waffles got a thumbs up from me!

Stay away from the square to eat and take a wander down the side streets as the restaurants look a lot more appetising! Plus it's a fun way to explore the city. Ah that Ferris wheel. It looks so pretty but it was terrifying. I've been on the London Eye before and thought I could hack this. But no I couldn't deal with the wind blowing us nor the open cart. It was an incredible way to see the whole of the city but I counted down the minutes until I was back on the ground.

Antwerp is great for a day trip if you're nearby. I don't know if I'd go back now I've been but I'm glad I went. It's a fairly average city and the historical square is very pretty to look at. I do love an old building!

Have you ever been to Antwerp?
