brussels #1: the vanishing act


(Quartier de la Cour: Place Royale, Montagne de la Cour, Mont des Arts)

Ever since I've arrived, I've stopped countless times what I am doing just to watch the sunset from my window. It is particularly beautiful in Brussels. Or maybe it's just me - a passer-by that wishes she could stay a little while longer already, that is noticing things she'd otherwise take for granted.

One day I was on the bus though, coming back from one of my many walks in the center, and I looked back. The view from the Mont des Arts towards the Grand Place was pretty special, and I decided I had to come back for just that. So I did.

Seeing these bits & pieces together makes me realize that March was a good month for travel. I got to know 3 new places:
Arlon, a little city in Wallonia right next to the borders. Not a very touristic place, but quite charming for its size.
Luxembourg, a country that surprised me for the beauty of their old quarters and fortifications.
Bruges, my first stop in Flanders. Everyone says you see Bruges in a day. And it's true. But contrary to what's usual, we stayed for one night and experienced Bruges by night as well. It was so absolutely wonderful I've been thinking about it all week.
How was last month for you?
