Located in western Europe the small country of Belgium has beautiful architecture, a rich history, and an excellent food scene. Both Dutch and French are spoken with the capital, Brussels, being officially bilingual.

The headquarters for the European Union and the NATO alliance as well as others are located in Brussels. Scenic, safe, and friendly, Belgium has a lot to offer.

Go beyond the waffles, chocolate and beer and you’ll find specialty dishes and great places to enjoy them.

Wherever we go, we always have a beaten up guidebook, local phrasebook, and weatherproof map in our backpacks.
