    Very beautiful shot Alison..so happy you’re promoting Belgium ..I only stuck to Antwerp up till now

  • Thank you Gilberte! I’m always surprised at how little promotion there is of the incredible architecture that is here. After almost four years in the country, I am still discovering new places all the time!

    What a remarkable edifice! Such splendor and opulence and so beautifully captured!

  • Thanks so much Bonnie! I really wish I could get a 360 view of Grand Place because the architecture around the entire square is stunning :)

    yeah you are.. I spent a whole 2 days just wandering the streets and listening to music.. got lost a few times.. but it was a great experience.. kind of an amazing place where you have skyscrapers and historical buildings almost side by side..

  • Well it’s not hard to get lost in Bxl that’s for sure. I’ve been living here for 3 years and it still happens to me sometimes. I adore the architecture here, it’s so different from Canada, and I do like the mix of old and modern although it has come at a price… It wasn’t until about 10 years ago that historical buildings here were preserved so I’m sure a lot of beauties were lost. Now there are protections in place and Bxl is finally starting to appreciate their architectural heritage.
