This is the story of luck. Not just my luck, it also has to do with your luck. Sometimes I get lucky. The travel Gods shine down upon me and give me a friendly hand, but this time they shined down upon me and gave me a trip to Belgium. Last fall I submitted this story and photography to a contest that AFAR Magazine was running online. Miracle of miracles – mine won.
For submitting an article about a cool off-the-beaten-path Highlight in the Netherlands, I won a trip to Belgium for two! The next decision was whom was I going to take? The luckyfriend ended up being my girlfriend Charlie, another avid traveler and photographer. Together we started planning our Belgium trip. Since I had been to Belgium and Brussels before I was eager to try to find some new places that I was yet to explore in Brussels, and Charlie and I were also eager to do some gastronomy travel in Belgium. I personally think that Belgium has some of the best gastronomic delights in the world – frites, cheese, beer, mussels, chocolate, and waffles to name a few classics.

I just spent 3 hours in the subway in Stockholm. No, it wasn’t stuck. No, I didn’t get lost. No, I wasn’t held hostage. I actually spent 3 hours in the subway on purpose.
The setting for the day’s ‘Food Follies’ would be the towns, villages, and farms around the Meuse River, dubbed the oldest river in the world.
“Don’t bring anything and don’t show up early unless you want to cook.” These were the only real rules I received after I booked my bookalokal Beer and Food group dinner in Brussels.
