A Chrismtas In Europe - Day 2

Stop 6 - Brussels, Belgium: The next morning we woke up and headed to a disappointing antique market in Place du Grand Sablon. After strolling through the market we headed to the Waffle Factory for a quick breakfast of waffles. It was here that we ate and compared liege and brussels waffles. Ryan and I agreed that while both were good, the liege waffles are definitely our favorite. 

Stop 7 - Ghent, Belgium: After breakfast we hit the road and headed to the city of Ghent. We headed straight to the Christmas market and explored the city from there. While at the market we feasted on churros and spiraled potato chips and the kids rode the merry go-round. We walked through the city city and enjoyed the unique architecture of the city. Ryan and I both agreed that Ghent reminded us a bit of Amsterdam.

Stop 7 - Dumon Chocolatier: After leaving Ghent we headed to the beautiful city of Bruges. As we entered the city, we made our first stop and the well reviewed chocolate shop, Dumon Chocolatier. We obviously loved the chocolate and especially loved the kick of energy that it gave the kids to help them make it through the rest of our evening.

Stop 8 - Grote Markt: Next we strolled around the corner to the beautiful Grote Markt square. The buildings were stunning and were lined with lights which made them even more dreamy. The kids ran around the square chasing each other for a while before we ate dinner at a little Italian restaurant in the square. After dinner we strolled through the city for a while exploring its many alleyways and enjoying the sights and sounds of the Christmas market.
