We woke up at 6am to catch our Flix bus to Belgium. We were all exhausted and passed out for the majority of our three bus ride. There was snow on the ground when we arrived and it was cold. We had to walk a bit to get out of the business district. We stopped for breakfast and to warm up at a little cafe.
It is a giant square surrounded by the most amazing buildings with different kinds of architectural design. It was pretty amazing and pictures don't do it justice!
We then went looking for the Pissing Boy fountain, which was not that impressive for how hyped up it as. The locals love it though and tourists flock to it. It plays a full part in the city’s annual calendar and even has an outfit for every occasion. I accidentally stepped on a fellow tourists foot and she made the biggest fuss about it! It was kinda funny.
Brussels has a lot of graffiti with matching themes.
The graffiti was all over the city and fun to see.
We stopped inside a small church and had pasta for lunch.
We then walked 40 minutes to our hostel to check in.
On our walk we saw The Royal Palace!
We took a much needed nap at the hostel.
When we got up we played pool at the hostel and had a few beers before heading out again.
We wanted to find a place close by to drink at, but it was nearly impossible!
I even stopped at the lobby of a hotel to ask about places nearby to drink.
Eventually we found ourselves back in the city center!
We got Belgium waffles! They were fantastic. We also listened to an Italian street performer sing and play a ton of instruments at once. He was so talented! He had a tambourine on his foot and a cymbal hanging from his guitar on a string. We walked past an old couple making out in the window of a bar and decided that we should get a drink there. They were all over each other! We sat right next to a fire place and hung out for a bit.
Our next stop was Delirium, which is a really popular bar in an alley way.
The place was packed with people and there were hundreds of beers to chose from!
We only picked beers that were 10.5% alcohol content or more, which was not a very smart idea.
While ordering a weird guy came up to Victoria, called her beautiful, and then asked her to buy HIM a beer. We proceeded to ignore him and I put my arm around Victoria. We walked back to our table and Victoria wanted to go outside and smoke. When she started walking up the stairs the creepy guy tried to follow her and I followed him. He turned around when I saw me behind him. While outside with Victoria we met a girl from Turkey. We told her about the creepy guy and she told us to tell him that "he needs to go away, because he is just a man." When we told her about our weird experience with guys during New Years Eve she told us we should have killed them. She has such great advice!
Back inside we met two Asian guys from San Francisco, a group of guys from Croatia, and the group next to our table were from Venezuela. We really hit it off with the group from Venezuela and danced with them. Victoria and I continued with our lesbian story we created for creepy guy and ran with it for the rest of the night. At one point, the entire bar was watching our group dance. Those beers fucked with us.
Outside we just happened to meet a real lesbian couple from somewhere in South America.
We all loved each other and kept only wanting to take pictures together, because lesbians need to stick together. Our lesbian story had gotten so ridiculous at this point, but we kept going. I did end up with pictures of a lot of people, but I'm not exactly sure what we talked about and why we posed for pictures together.
We made it around the corner, when Victoria decided she needed to pee and so did I.
We peed right in the alley way, because we are classy ladies. Victoria couldn't get her pants back up and cried, while I died of laughter and attempted to help her. We found a pile of snow and decided to have a snowball fight. I'm pretty sure the snow was the farthest thing from clean. I tried to fix all the things that were knocked down and Victoria tried to dance on every pole we walked past. We were a shit show.
