Frankendael Park, Amsterdam










From my wandering of Frankendael Park, Amsterdam. This park was very close to where I was staying. It was a beautiful green space that was once an old estate. Frankendael is Amsterdam’s only remaining 17th-century country estate.  This wonderful space included sculpture, gardens, nature, two restaurants, and a manor home. There were also two stork pairs, which was a nice surprise.

Edam, trip to a cheesy town!







We took the bus from Amsterdam to Edam and the Edam cheese festival. This was a small quaint and historical town. I loved wandering down to the cheese festival. People were selling food and in period dress. It was fun watching cheese being carted around and weighed. More tomorrow....

On the way to Magritte, Brussels





Our last morning in Brussels we visited, RenĂ© Magritte Museum. Sadly, no photos allowed in the museum. The Museum to be part of a row of museums in Brussels. I loved the museum and had a great time seeing all of his work.

Lucky for me, we walked through a small chinatown on the way. I love Chinatowns! We were not in Brusssels long but we seemed to fit in quite a bit with lots of photos!

Langoustines and lots of tasty food

Les Crustaces  - This restaurant was across from our hotel. Love the neon!
Langoustines, or Nowegian Lobster, these
guys are smaller than american lobsters but very tasty and a real treat
I ordered Lobster and it was very yummy. My lobster was soaked in butter. A bit decadent

Loved the dessert too. I hope you enjoyed this post on food in Brussels. It was a perfect night to sit outside and have our dinner.
