Travelling to Brussels with less than 60 pounds.
So I decided to take an overnight bus from London to Brussels. The plan was: I would sleep on the bus, arrive in Brussels at 6 am, explore as much as I could and get the bus back in the evening.
So here is what I have seen on my 16 hours in Brussels:
Tintin, Gaston, Lucky Luke and even the Smurfs were created in Brussels.
Tintin is everywhere. At the museum, book shops, streets..
Tintin is for Brussels what Rihanna is for Barbados (yep, what a weird comparison)
If you go to the tourist information centre at the Town Hall of Brussels you can buy a map with the Comic Route and find all the Comic Strip Murals and the Comic Strip Museum.
Here is part of the Comic Route I have seen in Brussels:
The city is filled with little chocolate shops and the most delicious belgian waffles.
It is a bronze statue of a little boy peeing.
Apparently the statue has many different outfits, his wardrobe ranges from Santa suits to national costumes from countries around the world.
Today he was chinese.

And ending the day watching a band play at La Grand Place.
An inspiring city full of life, art and the most mouth watering waffles you will ever see.
