Last week I spent four days in the beautiful Antwerp, Belgium on a ‘school trip’ away with my university class. At first mention, I wasn’t particularly excited by the thought of Antwerp (I knew nothing about it) and hadn’t ever considered visiting, but I’m so glad that I did, as you’ll see from my incessant photography. I think my whole class fell in love with it – but perhaps that was because of all the beer..!
We arrived on a sunny afternoon (well done Carrie for wearing a jumper, I thought), and I spent the rest of it wandering the city – this is always my favourite part of a trip. I shed my tights and then ran in to a couple of friends, we bought strawberries (okay, they bought strawberries, I was on the chocolate chip cookies for the rest of the night) and went to sit by the river for sunset. You’d never guess we all have a dissertation to hand in in a few weeks…
If you’ve not been before, I can probably sum up Antwerp in a few words: fries, waffles, bicycles, small dogs and beer. A winning combination! I have a million more photos to share with you, including a few of the above (okay, a LOT of the above, especially the bicycles!).
As for my outfit, I hadn’t planned to photograph it until Lucy snapped the above whilst the sun was shining the right direction. A huge serving of grey with a splash of orange on the side, perfect for the Eurostar, not so practical on the streets of Antwerp – my legs were permenantly on show for the rest of the trip! x
