Whit week end in the Capital of Europe

I am sure you found out which city I am about to talk about! That is a lot of “about”…anyway…

Well, I had the opportunity to go to the Capital of Europe for the first time thanks to one of the “fearless voyageuses” Larra. Larra is from Canada and she looooves traveling even more than me! She invited me to join in this trip and I want to thank her a lot first. It was not planned and (thus) memorable, this city is very sophisticated but not only! Grand Place its fizzy “ambiance”, in town the luxurious streets and shops, fine and delicious chocolate and I have to mention the waffles …everything touristy.

Then when I looked a bit closer I was…gladly surprised 🙂
Modern too! I mean when you see the The Atomium, the equivalent of our Eiffel Tower, it is clearly a different side of the European capital!

Last but not least, definitely a strange city…
Among various encounters with the inhabitants one is by far THE little star there. Yes, I met the “rude boy” ahah
This symbol is also one of the elements that makes the place so famous and quirky. Quirky is probabably the right word to describe the city.
You guess right it is Brussels! I let you enjoy the video I made with my travel buddy 😉 #FearlessVoyageuse

 

Fall “egco” trip to Bordeaux with my Bordelais

Ah this fall season *sighs*. Definitely not for me as a lady of spring. Well, we can still do something about it, that is good news. Therefore, I was wondering what would be the best place I could escape to? A place that would warm my heart…my blood, with wine ahah!

To me Bordeaux is a perfect deal for a fall short trip. Out of town for a looooong week end! Before I drop my post about this sweet getaway, let me take you there, are you ready for a little tour in the city labeled “Top city in the world for 2017” by Lonely Planet.

Enjoy!
