Last Sunday, I went to Brussels (Belgium) with some friends from ESTEC. We went by car and took a bit more than 2 hours to get there from Leiden. Our intention was to visit the city in a relax way and to see the most important places and enjoy the local food and drink ;-)
Some of the places we passed by are:
-The Royal Palace
-The central square full of ancient and beautiful buildings
-The Manneken Pis. Thanks to Andrea for his sense of humour ;-)
-The European Parliament
- This is the full group in the European Parliament. From left to right: Andrea, Alvaro, Marco, Davide, Ilaria, Laura, Diego and Daniel.
The last place we visited was the Atomium, one of the most famous symbols of the city. I expected to find a 2-3 metres high structure and instead I found a huge and magnificent monument! Really nice surprise!! A really beautiful place which was superb with the sunset light...
Of course, we enjoyed the good things in Belgium!!
-And the chocolate!!
A really nice day in company of nice people! ;-)
