A weekend in Paris

One of the many wonderful things about Europe is how close everything is together. Relatively. Compared to Australia! When we randomly discovered that there was a gig on over Easter that we wanted to see down in Paris, we booked it, and jumped on a train! Four hours later, we were unpacking in our hotel.

Given that this was my second time in Paris, we decided that our best course of action was to see things that I hadn’t seen the first time around, but also that were open for the long weekend. This left us many options of things to see, while still giving us some focus of what we could to get in to. Would you like to know more?

Inside half of that massive building I showed you at the end of my previous post is the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History, Brussels – Belgium.

Like so much of Western Europe, Belgium has a long and colourful history of battles it has fought. The Museum is set up with a timeline in the opening hall. Would you like to know more?

Brussels, Belgium – Part 2

The Grand Place or Grote Markt in Dutch/Flemish is the central square of Brussels. It is surrounded by truly opulent buildings, one of which houses the Museum of the City of Brussels. The square itself is UNESCO World Heritage Listed.

Similar to Dam Square in Amsterdam it is a nexus point for all sorts of sight seeing tours of the city. Would you like to know more?

Brussels, Belgium – Part 1

Brussels is the capital city of Belgium and home to the headquarters of the European Union also. Now, Himself and I had stopped in to Brussels once before on La Duchessa, but it’s hard to walk around and see all the things you want to see when you’re in full motorbike armour!

We knew we wanted to do some justice to Brussels, as it has so much to offer. So went back for a whole weekend in order to see some of the things we had just glimpsed from the back of the bike. Would you like to know more?
