Sunday turned out to be the most Belgian day of the summer for me, even though I’ve already been here for a month.
We started with a cycle tour (of course) of De Kastelenroute, or basically a tour of massive houses just outside of Gent.
The seasoned professional took me on my tour.
Our entire tour took four hours, 35 km, 1 Cola light, 1 dark Sunday beer, 1 Croque Monsieur, 1 tapas plate, 3 wrong turns and a foal that came to say hello!
The countryside just outside of Gent is absolutely gorgeous!
After our enormous cycle, it was finally time to take the plunge and try les moules, something that gave me a bit of anxiety since I eat only fish and calamari when it comes to seafood.
Obviously I had to dress for the occasion…
Bra: Urban Outfitters (similar here
Shorts: Forever21 (similar here
Then came the moment of truth…
He was extraordinarily proud of his dish (as he should have been)!
Mussels, onions, celery, carrots, white wine, bread and a glass of Cava on the side led to…
An absolutely delish meal!
I won’t lie, I rewarded myself with some praline chocolates right after this was taken…
What a lucky girl I am, with tours of gorgeous cities and homemade meals? Belgium, I do adore you!
Have you had any new meals recently?
Have a swell Tuesday!
