We settled on dates and accommodation, and then met at our hotel on a lovely Saturday morning (E. and I had flown over the day before so had had time to walk around and take notes). The sun was shining for the entire weekend, everybody was relaxed, happy and really well fed. What could you ask more of a mini holiday with great friends!
There was some sightseeing but food was definitely a very big part of our weekend. Brussels is really a perfect city for both of those things!
