Brussels is a beautiful city with charming street cafés, beautiful buildings, the best beer and chocolate in the WORLD (no exaggeration), and a lot of history. Of course, when I decided to visit, I had no idea how much I would fall in love with the Belgian lifestyle. I had a weekend off from Au Pair duties…
