I needed a car

I needed a car for a few days for a midweek business trip to Brussels. We picked the car up near to our Hotel and returned the following day. I booked an Audi A4 or similar and we were given a BMW 3 series. My preference would have been the A4, but the BMW was fine.

Would have been

Would have been much better if I had hired sat nav with my car rental as I got completely lost and had a few near misses as I got flustered. Have learnt my lesson for next time!

Belgium Mini Guide

Belgium is situated along the North Sea coast of Europe. Being part of the Benulux community Belgium is a crossroads to western parts of Europe. With land borders to the Netherlands in the north, Germany in the east, Luxembourg in the southeast and France in the southwest. Belgium is a very densely populated nation, which makes management of resources, transportation and other civil amenities a priority with the Belgium government.

The terrain of Belgium is varied. In the northeast the landscape is most notably comprised of very flat coastal plains. The central part of Belgium features rolling, densely wooded hills. In the southeast the Ardennes Forest with its charming valleys dominates the landscape.

Belgium can be split into three distinct regions. The area of Flanders in the North or Belgium is a predominantly Dutch speaking region. Major cities within Flanders include Bruges, Ghent and Antwerp. Flanders is typified by flat, open plains with few hills. Brussels is the central area of Belgium, the administrative centre of not on Belgium but also the European Union (EU). In the south can be found the manly French speaking region of Wallonia. Near the German border in Wallonia there is also a much smaller German speaking region.

Major cities in Belgium include Brussels, the capital city and the administrative headquarters of the EU, some excellent museums and cultural sites can be found within Brussels. Antwerp is the largest city in Belgium, most notable for its cultural heritage, medieval style streets and the imposing cathedral. Liege is the largest city in the region of Wallonia, built along the shores of a wide river, a stunning city with easy access to a wealth of outdoor pursuits include hiking and trekking.
