Brussels -> Luxembourg πŸ‡±πŸ‡ΊΒ 

Last Friday I decided that I’ve seen enough of Brussels, I got up super early that morning. Managed to get myself out of my hotel room and headed to Brussels Noord, the train station. I bought a return ticket for 25€ πŸ˜… (INSANE HOW CHEAP IT IS!) And hopped on the train πŸš‚ 

I walked all over the city of Luxembourg, taking in everything and not believing that I spent 3 hours on a train and then ended up in a different country Just like that! 




       Notre Dame Cathedral is only a 10    

     minute walk from the train station πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ


                  

                     The dukes “house” 🏑  

                          Place d’Armes 


The streets are beautiful and the shops are incredible! Sadly I wasn’t able to shop a lotπŸ‘ŽπŸΌ that’s the shitty thing about travelling alone! I couldn’t carry everything! I was walking around with my camera, bag, shopping bag, pastries etc. Exhausted because of the heat and how much I walked πŸ˜‚ 


I also stopped by a restaurant since I was starving and the only thing I managed to eat during the train ride was raspberries😫 at the restaurant I got duck breast with potatoes and season vegetables with pepper sauce on the side! 😍 I don’t remember the name of the restaurant but I’m planing on writing a post about some of the best restaurants I’ve tried! And this one might be included! So stay tuned! 


So in conclusion, on Wednesday I started exploring! It all started with a short flight from Aalborg to Copenhagen. Where I then was stuck at the airport because of a delay with Brussels airlines! The delay had me miss the last train in to the city, so I had to take a cab and ended up almost paying 50€ I let the driver know that according to maps on iPhone, meaning the GPS, the hotel was only 14km away. The c*nt kept saying “no no no, you no understand” He kept saying it’s atleast 17-20km away! It would take 20-25 minutes blah blah.. -.- So I got scammed that easily! We ended up arriving 10 minutes after I got into the car πŸ™ƒ Even though he tried taking longer and more complicated routes & roads  πŸ™ƒ

Day 1. Brussels πŸ‡§πŸ‡ͺΒ 

So far so GOOD! The entire day has been amazing! I only wish that Laust was here! I really wish I could share this with him 😦 But hopefully next time we’ll go somewhere together! 😍


I started my day at about 8-9 Am where I got ready and then stepped out the door at precisely 10 AM. I walked all the way to Grand Place, I managed to get a hotel right in the city centre for an okay price! Everything else was either too far out or fully booked πŸ‘ŽπŸΌ  


I snapped a lot of pictures πŸ˜…



Grand place! (Gigantic !!!) and full of tourists! (Including me πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚)

The Grand place is very beautiful! 😍


I got lost in this city because of its beauty! 


After seeing and exploring Grand place I went over to the fountain of Manneken Pis, it’s unknown what the story about the peeing boy is, but there are many tales. There was a big crowd there taking pictures of and with the fountain. It was very hard to get a good shot! But somehow I managed! As a souvenir from that place I got chocolates that are shaped like the peeing boy! πŸ˜‚


After the peeing boy, I decided to walk to the European Parliament! I walked through Brussels park 🌲 🌳 and I keep falling more and more in love with this place! 😍


Old statues in the park, this is a very big park by the way. πŸ˜…


The European Parliament was something else! I couldn’t get in because I was too late for the visit tour, and the next one was way later, and I couldn’t be bothered waiting there! But I saw it! And I took pictures of it! πŸ˜‚ I saw a bunch of important people, with their guards and police escorts etc. That was something I’ve never seen before, it was intense! 


Shortly after I was done there I walked back to the peeing boy! πŸ˜…


I got myself Belgian waffle with Belgian chocolate! 😍 SO YUMMY πŸ˜‹ 

​​
And lastly for dinner I got myself a chicken burger! 


This burger was probably the best one I’ve had! Beats every other fried chicken place πŸ— I got the burger from Hectors Chicken! 😍 Freshly made! Fast and delicious πŸ˜‹ 

That is all for today! I’m looking forward tomorrow’s adventures!

Day 1. Brussels πŸ‡§πŸ‡ͺΒ 

Snickerkaka😍

So this is an all times favourite for me!

Three + something  years ago I started working at a cafΓ©, and they always made this thing called snickerkaka! That’s when I first got introduced to it! They gave me the recipe so I’d start making it at home😍 And ever since I started making I began adding my own flavours and ingredients! Making it into my own special thing! 

Tonight I made a batch using these ingredients:

Cornflakes 

Nutella

Peanut butter 

Butter 

The original recipe contain syrup and dark chocolate, but since I was using Nutella I decided to not use any syrup! There’s enough sugar in Nutella as it is!
I started off by melting the Nutella and gradually adding water because I didn’t want it to be too thick.. I then melted butter and added penutbutter, the butter is to aid the peanut making it smooth, (usually its syrup the goes in the mix here..) 

Afterwards I crushed cornflakes in a bowl, and blended the melted penutbutter, I took a form and layered sheets of paper, and spread the cornflakes, penutbutter mix on it, gave it 5-7 minutes to rest, and then poured the melted Nutella on top.. 

Popped it into the freezer because I couldn’t wait to eat itπŸ˜‚ and here’s the final result!  

I obviously didn’t spend a lot of time making it.. but it’s a really tasty snack😍

Dinner 🍽

We travelled back to Arrecife, spent an hour or so at the hotel and went back out to the beach here instead. Walked around for a bit trying to find a place to eat, but it was hard since most places closed for siesta.. But we found a place that had a 4 cheese pizza, fresh cheese with dates etc. Ordered schnitzel as well, but was way too hungry to snap a picture of it… hahah πŸ˜‹

Dinner 🍽

✈️

After a long week of doing coursework I earned myself a trip down to Faro, Portugal!Β 

I managed to finish all of my assignments to make sure this mini getaway is completely stress free and well earned! And guess what?! It most certainly is!Β 


I touched down at Faro airport, a fairly small airport, not what I expected at all. A wave of heat and humidity hit me right off balance but I managed to take out whatever cash I needed and grabbed my luggage and jumped in a cab that took me straight to the hotel.Β

The hotel is in the heart of the city, everything is nearby. As soon as I checked in and freshened up I went out for a stroll. Explored some cool places and took heaps of pictures πŸ“·
