So here's my friday travel story on saturday💁 (missed writing one yesterday)
So this one is special, as its about my travel buddy 'Mimi' and also about my solo travel in europe.. To #belgium
Mimi is my little alien turtle who has been travelling with me everywhere (literally) since last 5 years, in my bag, suitcase, backpack. .. she is with me always on all my adventures.. So Mimi and i went to Antwerp this winters and it was our first time in #euro rail.. 🚂 and one of my best travel experiences.
Antwerp is Belgiums fashion capital and should be on your travel list when visiting Belgium or even when in Amsterdam. It's a perfect day trip destination. Its around 1.5 hours from Amsterdam and about 30 euros only via train. (Hence a must😋) So when u take the train u also get to see the country side, which is absolutely breathtaking. The canals, rivers , farms and #windmills. It's all so #dreamy!
Honestly I had no idea of Antwerp and made a random plan to travel on my own the next morning.. I was absolutely surprised by its architecture and the lifestyle.. Antwerps train station is one of the prettiest stations in the world and a must see.. i loved it. It's absolutely #vintage. To
Get to the city centre, all you have to do is to follow the street outside the train station. It's very easy & impossible to get lost. Ther are unlimited options of restaurants (attached a pic of my breakfast 🍟) and shops .
Make sure totake some famous Belgian chocolates home with you 🍫
I walked for hours without even realising the time- around the castle, cathedral, market and the river side.
You can also rent a bike and experience the city like the locals.
The areas around Grote Market and De Wilde Zee are the places to buy local souvenirs.
The trains run until 10-10:30 p.m. So u wont have any problems if you want to leave late.
Mimi n I had a great time just relaxing around .. do let us know if u have been there tooo. .. hope u liked this #fridaystory
