I know that for many students who come to study abroad the aspect of traveling to other cities is a big part of the study abroad experience. Students have certain cities and things they want to see. So where would I go is the question?
As my Professor, Alexandra, of Travel Writing would say: “researching a place before you go is always important”. While researching where to go, Brussels stood out to me. I found that Belgium was known for fries, chocolate, beer and waffles. I won’t lie – these are the reasons I chose to travel to Belgium. I feel it’s best to explain my five day trip with pictures:
I came to Brussels for the beer, fries, chocolate and waffles, but learned far more about the city than that. The city is full of diversity and culture. For example: there is a variety of different restaurants with Ethiopian food, American food, Belgian food, Chinese food and even Italian food! It felt like so many aspects of other countries packed into one city, which is why I loved it so much.
