Brussels, Beer, Chocolate
A BIG thank you to Today FM and Leonidas Chocolate for our great holiday.
Last year I was lucky enough to win a 5 night, 5 star holiday in Brussels on Today FM in conjunction with Leonidas Chocolate. Included was a beer tour, a waling chocolate tour and even a chocolate workshop. And a visit to a new city meant a chance for me to wander around snapping photos. Beer, chocolate and photography- heaven!
Some friends joined us on the holiday and we had a great time. I’d highly recommend Brussles as a place to visit; great beer and waffles, lovley city to just wander around in.
“Brussels Sprouts” is a song by by Lionel Hampton, a Jazz giant from the 1930′s. (I give all my blog posts related musical titles.
