antwerp day 1

(note: this is one day late and we actually arrived yesterday but i had some technical difficulties, sorry)

dear diary,

when i woke up this morning, i was super-duper excited (for once)! who wouldn’t be if you were about to set off on a lil’ family adventure? we had a simple breakfast, got ready, did a bit of last minute packing and we were out the door at about 6.50 where we were collected by an uber. once we arrived at victoria coach station, my mum bought a few nibbles for the journey and we boarded the bus at 8.10 :)! fast forward a few hours, and we arrived in antwerp, yippee!

it was about a 10 minute walk to our hotel (we were staying at the hilton antwerp old town)! i found it really cute that most of the buildings still maintained their 19th century facade <3! many people were cycling along the pavement and the weather was absolutely gorgeous :)!

when we arrived at our hotel, we decided to check in and go for a stroll around the square.

about an hour later, we decided to head back to the hotel so we could have a look at the hotel terrace. i am so happy that we did since the view was lovely! the sun was setting while we were there which bathed the terrace in a golden glow :)! after having a lil’ snack in the executive lounge, we settled down in our hotel room… nine hours of travelling really tired us out!

have you visited belgium? if so, where specifically? i would love to hear about your adventures <3!

thank you so so much for reading! phew, i am so tired… i need to sleep, aha. stay tuned for day 2 tomorrow!


until next time.

with much love,
