my life BRUXELLES & ANTWERP 

Yesterday I decided to take my family -my mom and dad- on a little road trip to Bruxelles. It's only a two hour drive from Amsterdam to Bruxelles, and believe it or not I've actual never visited the capital of Europe. It's a shame, I know I know.
First we went to this antique market at this place called 'Les Marolles', there were dozens of market stalls selling vintage clothing, glasses and bags. Oh and they also sold a lot of Tribal Art from African and Balinesian origin. I would have loved to roam around this market, but I really felt uncomfortable by some people who were staring at me and especially at my camera. I really didn't want people to rob my camera -dûhû- so I left it after about an hour.
After that we went to this shopping district localized on 'Rue Neuve' they've got some shops in Belgium they don't have in Holland -or Amsterdam- (yet), such as Forever 21, New Look and Promod. I really let my hair down shopping items from these stores. I will show you my new trophies very soon.
Before we left Bruxelles we went to see 'Manneke pis'! The main touristic attraction in Bruxelles (and it really showed, it was so crowded, My Gosh). The minute we arrived we saw a whole spectacle around it because it exactly existed 25 years.
On our way home we decided to pay Antwerp a visit. One of my besties emigrated to Antwerp to study over there. So we unfortunately don't get to spend a lot of time together due to distance and time. I had to see her! We spent only 15 minutes together but it was like old times.
♥ you B.

Got the whole Amsterdam-in-Bruxelles vibe while looking at these bicycles, love it!// The exit to Antwerp// B. & me// African and Balinesian tribal art// Escargots, anyone?// Isn't this rocking donkey just adorable// Europe!// Me// 'Manneke Pis'// The forever 21 store, the guard of the store almost kung fu'd me for making this picture// A girl who was Rhönradding in the time the traffic light were red// An Brussels street-view

Liefs,

  31. Wauw, heele mooie foto's ! Maar die markt heeft niet "De Marollen", de Marollen is een plek in Brussel, het is eigenlijk de armere buurt. De markt wordt gehouden op het Vossenplein en wordt dan ook meestal daar naar genoemd. Ik ben er ook al af en toe geweest (ik studeer in Brussel) en je kan er inderdaad best uitkijken als je er rondloopt met dure dingen (of korte rokjes ;)) ! Als je nog eens in Brussel bent, moet je zeker eens een kijkje nemen in de Dansaertbuurt, daar heb je super veel vintage winkeltjes, sommigen verkopen spulletjes voor een veel mooiere prijs dan op die markt ;) !
