Today we did a lot of traveling.
We checked out of our hotel at 7:15am to catch our train to Brussels at 8:25am. We had a quick breakfast at the train station before boarding the train.
We arrived in Brussels, Belgium at 9:45am and took the metro into town (4.5 Euros for a 1-day pass). We first had Belgian waffles at Agora Place. You choose your own toppings and pay for each topping. Afterwards we went to check out the chocolate places and bought ourselves some snacks for the road. We visited the famous Manniken Pis (the statue of a little boy peeing). We had a wonderful lunch of mussels, stewed beef, gin, and beer. We visited the chocolate museum (5 Euros) and beer museum (5 Euros, includes one glass of beer!). We then headed back to the train station to catch the 5:15pm train to Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
We arrived at 8:30pm and had a hard time finding our hotel, the Bulldog Hotel & Hostel. We went to have some dinner of falafel and schwarma pita before visiting the red light district. It started raining though so headed back to rest after our long day of traveling.
