The poor photos I've posted aren't particularly brilliant and don't do justice to a city both my wife and I love. It's one of the cities that we've considered moving to. We never know what the future holds, but Brussels is still on the list.
I took the train from the Paris Gare du Nord and arrived at Brussels' Midi/Zuidstation about 80 minutes later. A quick taxi ride to the hotel (where the driver ripped me off by claiming a 20 euro fixed rate) and the next morning was a short walk to the venue.
I love this about Europe. In the time it takes you to drive across many cities in the US, I can be in another country. It's awesome.
