Good-bye Toronto; Hello Bruxelles
Off we go to Europe! Mom and Dad dropped us to the airport for the evening and we got ready to get on the plane, hoping for the kids to sleep in order to aid the transition.
We spent our first day in Brussels after taking a train into the city from the airport between flights. It was a pretty low key day as we were tired after having had only 5 hours sleep on the plane (less for me because my butt shared the chair with Soleil's head and Kaizen slept on the floor so my feet didn't have a spot either). We did eat Belgium chocolate (given to us gratis from the shopkeeper for a reason I couldn't figure out --unless it was because the kids are so cute) and see a little of the Belgium day-time city life. Cute streets, tourist seafood restaurants and prep for this weekend's Belgium beer festival.
