We visited Brussels last year, Easter Bank Holiday 2016. Many of you will remember that this date was just a few days after the Brussels bombings. Our trip had been planned for a good couple of months and when the tragedy occurred we took a long, hard think about whether to continue on with our trip. Well, we did, and we were greeted with the amazing spirit of the Belgian people – brought together by a devastating event.
Here are some images we took in the city a few days after. Messages were written all over the walls, flowers laid everywhere, and people singing in the streets – a true picture of unity and courage in the face of something terrible.
We had the most amazing weekend, spirits were high, the people friendly as ever – such an amazing city.
