Part II | CHIC Travels | Brussels

16 January, 2015

Barney and I in front of Mont des Arts, which is located in the center of Brussels and is considered a historic site. In the photo above and below you get to see Brussels Town Hall tower (which you saw HERE) peeking through the landscape of buildings. This area was highly populated way before the garden existed, and was known as Quartier Saint Roches, but by the end of the 19th century, King Leopold II had the idea of converting the hill into a temporary garden and ordered to do monumental staircases and cascading fountains. Between 1956 and 1958 the garden went under a major reconstruction and it is what you see now. 

Barney has become quite the traveler, he came with us and although it was a bit of a challenge when snow fell during one of the days we were there, we love traveling with him because it's a whole different dynamic when he comes along.

Place Royale

The Music Instrument Museum (MIM) is located in the central of Brussels and is part of the Royal Museums for Art and History. MIM is internationally renowned for its collection of over 8,000 instruments, the collection was created in 1877, to educate students of early instruments. 

Oh and let's not forget the millions of waffle shops/trucks located all over the city, that fill your nose with happiness. I love waffles, well I love sweets period, but waffles are one of my favorite treats and I made it a point I could not leave Brussels without trying the famous Belgium Waffles...I will tell you a story about that on the next edition of Brussels. 

The photo that inspired one of the shots from this outfit post, and has become favorite of mine. There is something so romantic and solitary about the look of this photo that I just love.
