Antwerp, Bruges and Ghent
Antwerp is in the Flemish part of Belgium along with Ghent and Bruges. We were advised not to speak French there, but to speak English instead. Language is very sensitive here because of tensions between the French and Flemish parts of the country. Lucky for me, I can’t speak French or Flemish anyway.
Antwerp had a lot of shopping and diamond stores. It was beautiful and fun but not worth more than a day trip. We saw a castle and the largest cathedral in Belgium. We had frites for lunch and were back in our flats by early evening.
