Brussels in 34 Hours

Paris to Brussels

As someone who was traveling via MegaBus for the first time, I was a little skeptical… especially since it was only 20 euros round-trip. But MegaBus turned out to be a quick and efficient four-hour bus ride. My other intern friends and I left Paris at 7:45 on Saturday morning from Porte Maillot, and arrived in Brussels just in time for lunch by noon.


Being notorious for its divine chocolates, waffles, and fries, Belgium certainly did not disappoint. {Pictured below: Godiva, Pierre Macolini, and various cafés}


A trip to Belgium isn’t complete without indulging in some perfectly brewed beer – which can be found at just about any café starting promptly at 11 A.M. Grimbergen, bsaed in Belgium, is a must to visit if you want to try the series of their top 5 beers – the blonde being my favorite. Delirium is also a fun venue to check out at night. It’s settled in the middle of Brussels and has the Guinness World Record for Most Beers on Tap – 2,004 beers to be precise.


Being the cheap college students that we are, my friends and I opted to stay in a hostel for the night; though the hostel we stayed in more closely resembled a quaint and charming bed & breakfast. It was easy to find with its loud vertical sign that reads, “Les Ecrins”. Upon our arrival, the staff greeted us warmly and escorted us to our rooms. Each room is equipped with a clean bathroom, towels, and WIFI. The beds were comfortable and the suite that we chose was spacious. On Sunday morning, the staff offered us platters of croissants, baguettes, and coffee. Needless to say, I would certainly recommend staying in Les Ecrins.


As you walk around the surprisingly quiet city of Brussels, you’ll stumble upon several great finds and areas. My favorites included Grand Place and Galeries Royales – which is from where most of my chocolate discoveries came.
