When I realized that Brussels is only an hour north of Paris, I hopped on the next train north. Backpack filled with camera gear. Brussels is often referred to the capital of the European Union – most official government meetings and conferences are held in Brussels. Steeped in history and architecture, Brussels has a lot to offer.

The first place I visited was Galeries Royales St. Hubert where it is known for its architecture and its glass covered hall. Inside the Galeries Royales St. Hubert are cafes, unique shops and places abound to sit and watch the world go by.

The Grand Place in Brussels holds the royal houses of old in all their architectural splendor and gold.
