Belgium Trip – Day 1 – Up, up and away

Up, up and away! Today was our first day from our 7 day trip in Belgium. We barely slept in the past 24 hours but was an amazing day.

We took of in the morning from Bucharest just in time to see the sunrise from the airplane… and it was amazing when we rise above the clouds…

Unfortunately because of the sun coming in directly into the plane window this one is not as spectacular as it was in reality.

The first thing that we did after we landed in Belgium is to search for a Frieten Kot (Fries Stand) and we found one and we ate the most delicious fries in the whole world. In Belgium you can find the most delicious fries, no doubt about it!

We decided then to sleep for a few hours to recharge our batteries and then we went out and visited our second home town where we lived for about 3 years: Ieper (Ypres). It is a magical small and quiet town with a rich history.

Here are some pictures from Ieper (Ypres):

The Old center of Ypres is a fantastic place to visit, below is a monument commemorating the First World War: Menin Gate
