My Day in Namur, Belgium

Continuing on with my European travels this summer, let’s go to Namur, Belgium!

Like I mentioned in my previous Belgian posts, Belgium blew me away! We stayed in three cities and each one was more beautiful than the last. Our final city Namur literally looked like scenes from a postcard. I mean, there was a HUGE citadel near where we stayed. A CITADEL.

Namur at the end of July very much reminded me of the Hamptons but like if the Hamptons had castles, too. We stayed at the beautiful Royal Snail hotel which was within walking distance from tons of restaurants, shops, and local fare. Tracy and I did a ton of walking around, taking in all the beauty, and snapping photos before we settled on grabbing dinner at Brasserie Francois. We were lucky to get a table because shortly after we got in, the place filled up very quickly. The food was just divine!

We wound up eating what felt like double our weight so we decided to do the 30 minutes or so walk back to the hotel. It was a Sunday so things were pretty quiet but there were still a ton of people out and enjoying the evening. And it was the BEST way to take in all the beauty of Namur. So picturesque and romantic. I wish I could have stayed even longer.

Yes, I know *eyeroll* spaghetti in Belgium, but I had so much mussels and frites and other Belgian treats PLUS I was having a major pasta craving at the time…lol

    I am going to visit there next year. Like you I fly Trinidad to visit family every year and maybe Bahamas and Jamaica. I need to visit more European countries.

      Heyyyy, Trini!!!

      Definitely do it! Europe is so fun and if you have the time, definitely try to visit as many places as you can while you’re over there. Some countries (and specific cities) are really inexpensive to fly into and out of so you can get pretty far on not a ton of money.
