Some start-up travel blogger out there looking for their niche should really move to Belgium and start a website called ‘Beer and Chocolate’.
Perhaps it was a product of Jonny and I hanging out in all the most touristy areas of each town but chocolate shops seemed to be around every corner with cathedrals to beer not far behind.
So of course, we gorged. Only rarely did we get on a bus between towns without a sample box of assorted deliciousness, and only once do I recall having gotten off those busses with any remainder of chocolate left uneaten.
But really, after you see the sheer glut of choices on offer, can you blame us?!
And of course, what sort of connoisseurs of the fine things in life would we be without an overloaded Belgium Waffle or three?
I could, perhaps, say more. I think this photo of BackpackingMan from Brussels, though, says it all.
As for myself, I’ll say this. I never ever (very rarely) buy souvenirs, but these two came home with me:
Beware, travelers on a tight budget or waistline. Belgium is waiting for you, and delicious things are everywhere.
