The Grand Place is one of the most awe inspiring places I have ever been to. We saw it both at night and during the day and must say nighttime was absolutely amazing!

Audio Expeditions For Brussels, Belgium
It's not quite a guided tour, but we did record an episodes of our podcast while we were in Brussels.
During our walk about the Earth, we've encountered a fair number of street musicians. And since we've always got an audio recorder on us... we recorded some of them. This week, it's a musical interlude on our show. Enjoy the sounds of a few street musicians we've met all across Europe!
Four days in Brussels with Evo fighting a cold isn't the best time ever. Still, we got out, did some things, and made it to England. Along the way, we managed to get some recording done, too!
Video Diaries Shot In Brussels, Belgium
It's possible we were a little tipsy when we recorded this. As it turns out, Belgian beers are pretty big. Not just in size, but in alcohol content. Surprise! But that Westvleteren 12 ... Wow. Not sure it's the best beer in the world, but it's without a doubt the best Belgian beer I've had and clearly worth the 100 points!. Gotta come over here to get it!
