Wanted to be somewhere else for
Christmas 2005, (rather than St Albans) but didn't want to travel too far.
Brussels caught my eye ..... only two and a half hours aboard the Eurostar,
plenty of history .. not completely closed over Christmas and the delightful
town of Bruges only an hour away. I found a cheap hotel, the Vendome,
which offered Bed and Breakfast, and was well situated on Blvd Adolphe Max to be
only a few minutes walking away from most of the older part of Brussels.
The pictures should give you an idea of what the city offers, and hopefully whet
your appetite for a weekend away trip ....
