My Favorite Beer - The Bourgogne De Flanders!

After a whirlwind trip to Istanbul, we flew to Brussels, Belgium. We were looking forward to the Belgian brews, chocolate, and waffles. We took a train from the airport to downtown Brussels and then walked about a mile to our B&B. We met our host and immediately went for a lovely walk of the neighborhood. He took us to this incredible pub called The Monk.

After that, we enjoyed a delicious traditional Belgian styled hearty dinner at Kom Bij Ma. On the way back to the flat, we stopped in at a local grocer and picked up some food for lunch the next day. The flat had a kitchen, with the basic cooking utensils, and a mini-fridge. It was a perfect getaway accommodation for this midway point in our trip!
