My original objective of the “Discovering Belgium” blog was to give you some ideas for a day out in Belgium – or just an hour or two if that’s all the time you have available on a public holiday or weekend.
There’s so much to see in this small but incredibly rich and diverse country. Think of Belgium and the big cities immediately spring to mind – such as Bruges, Antwerp, Ghent and Brussels – but there is plenty to see away from the city lights. Much of this blog therefore focuses on places in Belgium that are “off the beaten track”: small towns and villages; parks and gardens; rivers and canals; castles and museums; with a special focus on country walks and activities for children.
However, since I started it, my interests have grown to include more than country walks. So the website also includes articles of broader interest: exhibitions at museums, music, arts & crafts, historic buildings, interesting people, the First World War, special events …
Basically, if it’s linked with Belgium, I may well discover it and write about it.
