Brussels : Belgium
Ok, so here’s the biggest understatement you’ll ever hear from me. The Palais de Justice is the most AWESOME building I’ve ever seen. Ever. Fact. Bar none. My visit went a little something like this:
Yeah, you can take the safe assumption I on the spot fell instantly in love with this building. I have no idea how long I was there with my jaw on the floor, my iPhone snapping like mad. I was however,
more than a little disappointed in an absolute desperate sulk as you weren’t able to go inside on the day I visited, and I saw it just a few hours before leaving to return to the UK. Gutted is not the word. Especially after seeing the on-line photo’s once I returned to the UK (take 2 of über sulk promptly commenced). Overall, Brussels I’m not overly in a rush to return to, I preferred my visit to Bruges, however I WILL be returning purely for this building alone and to openly drool over some more. I’m going to say one thing to you – VISIT. That is all.
Anyway, apparently there’s other places to visit in Brussels. You’ll be forgiven for forgetting about them once you’ve visited the law courts, however I did find these on my camera when I got back, so they obviously must exist…
An obsessive with standards, we stayed in the Mr & Mrs Smith recommended hotel Be Manos. If you want somewhere clean, sleek, modern with a nice little masculine twist, check it out. I’d hit you with a better review, but the Mr & Mrs site has done a far better job than the justice I’ll give it. Certainly received a thumbs up from us though.
