Being the beer lover I am, and the flight into Brussels being the cheapest from Vancouver to Europe, it was an easy decision to have Brussels the first stop on my 8 week romp through Europe. I only spent two days in Brussels, and was mainly just recovering from my jetlag. Due to the jetlag, I was up quite early each day. I actually found this to be a bit of a benefit, as I could go explore the city before all the tourists woke up. Here are some of my favorite shots from my first couple days of the trip.
Up at 4am, meant I could get out with my tripod and take some sunrise photos (well cloudy sunrise photos).
Poelaert Square by the Belgium Law Courts
The Grand Place in Brussels
The only people out in the Grand Place this early in the morning were workers bringing in supplies for the hotels and restaurants
