For a few days in mid-August, Allison and I traveled across the Netherlands and Belgium.
We decided on a whim to spend a day in Antwerp.
Central Square or Grote Markt
Cathedral in the town centre. They had an exposition of Peter Paul Rubens and his students. Inside of the cathedral. Yeah.
“If it ain’t Baroque, don’t fix it!”*
Killer antiques. Tintin was everywhere in this town.
Stumbled across a medieval castle along the harbour.
Oh and we had lunch in an Opera House.
Antiques, unexpected fine arts, market squares and medieval castles.
All in all, love at first sight.
*YES I MADE THAT BEAUTY AND THE BEAST JOKE.
