I recently traveled to Belgium for the very first time and I absolutely loved it. Despite the fact that Belgium is a very small country when compared to my home country of Turkey, it has its own way of attracting people. Antwerp especially drew me in on this trip and I enjoyed every last mile of it. Being able to discover the city with the help of locals (I stayed with fellow photographer friends on my trip) truly made the experience. Small coffee shops with great coffee, designer stores (of which I still have a few left to visit), peaceful streets, and amazing art added color to the dark, northern European weather. Antwerp should be a must-see on everyone’s Europe travel list.
