A EUROPEAN CITY BREAK // TRAVEL

three night in Brussels
Add caption
This week has flown by so quickly that I'd almost forgotten to share our exciting news! On Saturday morning I'll be setting our alarm super early and heading on a mini adventure to spend three days in Brussels with my boy and mum, to celebrate all things good and explore the fab city as invited by Accor Hotels.

We'll be travelling on the Eurostar, much to F's excitement, who can't wait to 'speed under the sea' and explore a new European city. While he's practising his train sounds I've jotted down some must see places and coffee hang outs to feed my addiction.

I can't wait to head over to the cosy eclectic interior of I Love Yeti and taste their homemade flat naans and bowl breakfasts. Also I've been dying to lounge in the ultra chic Living Room, which oozes design, ceramics and beautifully presented teas *swoon*. Not to mention the infamous Change Your Lifestyle, otherwise know as CHYL. This cafe, meets beauty, meets shop is an oasis of green in the city and a hot spot for the cool and health conscious. My mum is already excited about the prospect of pampering and a potential reflexology session, while I'll happily hang out with F under their green draped ceiling.

I must admit I've visited Brussels once in my long gone university youth, but the city was a blur from  hazy nights out, hangovers and a slim student wallet. So I'm thrilled to be returning to this beautiful metropolis and rediscovering its style and charm!

If you have any recommendations then I will be using Instagram and Snapchat #wildandgrizzly during my stay and would love to hear your top travel tips of places to explore. 

Have a great weekend.

  1. All my recommendations involve very heavy drinking in very late night bars, due to the time in my life where I spent time in Brussells. Le Manequin Pis is overrated though, I will say that. The chips and mayo, and the stroopwafel, are not.

  6. Brussels is incredibly beautiful! Are you still going with everything going on? Would love to hear how your experience is! Saint Gery is a must as well as Grand Palace. The museum of music was surprisingly one of the coolest things I did there. OMG chocolate shop: Corne Port-Royal I promise it is THE best chocolate you'll ever have in your life- stores only exclusive in belgium & very few in france. Hope you enjoy dear! By the way, I found your blog on Pinterest :) So happy I did!
