On the road: Antwerp

On the  way to our holiday house in Ouddorp, Netherlands, we stopped half way in Antwerp for a stroll around town, sampling some Belgian food staples like French fries and Belgian waffles. We were spoiled with sunshine, I don't know how, but the weather was really supportive of all my traveling ambitions in 2015. On our stroll we passed the windows of Dries van Noten's boutique, getting a glimpse of the fashion capital that Antwerp is. Obviously, I had to spend some of my Christmas money on some new pieces....thanks, Martin, for the patience ;-)

Antwerp is well wort a visit with the Rubenshuis, the Museum Aan Stroom, the diamond quarter and the beautiful architecture (have a look at the train station, one can easily picture how the steaming trains used to arrive here). 

Unfortunately, I was still quite tired after the weekend shift at the hospital over Christmas so we didn't stay too long and continued our way towards Ouddorp. However, we'll be back....
