A winter excursion

Last Saturday I was lucky enough to be invited on a bloggers' day trip to Brussels as part of Eurostar's Little Break campaign. A 7am train and home in time for the X-Factor made for a fun action-packed day of chocolate-tasting, Belgian fries at a swanky restaurant and feeling very Christmassy wandering round the Christmas market. Lessons learned: leave more time than I think I need and make more of an effort to brush my hair at 5am...I wasn't expecting so many cameras (and ouch, even a video camera!) I love this review of our trip, too.

It was certainly a fun day out - I'm just hoping we all get invited to Paris next. :)

ohh I was in Brussels last December for a few days and (while it's, granted, not my most fave city in Europe) it was wonderful. Your pictures make me miss it!! But it sounds like a wonderful day! :)
