We got up pretty early because we wanted to get out of that shitty hostel. We went to breakfast and then we went back to Trafalgar square. It was pretty early so there wasn't any tourists so we got a whole bunch of pictures climbing up on the lions and stuff without any other tourists in them and it was really sunny so it was pretty nice. Then we just kind of slept on the stairs for awhile haha. Later we went to an internet cafe just to kill time and we went on for an hour each (only 1 pound!). While we were there we met two guys who were backpacking too, they had just got to London but the airline had lost ALL of their bags!! I would have died if that happened to us. We went back to Piccadilly and went to the Tesco grocery store to get some food for the train. The Eurostar station was pretty sweet, the train only took about 2 hours.

Its crazy though how it goes under water. Once we got to Brussels
we had quite the time trying to find our hostel. We had to take the metro to Rogiers station and once we got there we went about an hour and a half in the complete wrong direction of our hostel. It was so hot outside and we had our huge packs on and we were getting pretty pissed off. We couldn't really find a taxiso we just decided to take the metro to rogiers station and then get a taxi from there. When we got to rogiers station and went to the taxi cue the guy was like, "umm its right there, i can see it from here" so that was embarassing and it turns out our hostel was only like 5 minutes from that station and we were walking around for an hour and a half in the wrong direction!!! blah.
The book of beer!!
so we checked in and went to our room, we were the first ones there so melissa and i both chose bottom bunks (score!) right away we met an american guy in the hall from texas and he invited us to go to a bar with him and a bunch of other people from the hostel. So ofcourse we said yes haha. There was about 8 of us but i don't really remember any of their names...anyways we went to this bar called Delerium which has over 2000 different types of beers!! its crazy and they had this massive book that listed them all. some of the canadian and american beers were in there and they were like 10 euros a bottle!! i think the most expensive one that we saw was 50 euros. haha i didn't try all 2000 but i did try 3!! i had a strawberry one, an apple one (they tasted like smoothies!) and another one but i don't remember the name but it was also good. we got pretty drunk but it was lots of fun. everyone started to leave but melissa and i hung around with 2 other canadians (geoff and mike). we stayed there till like 2 or 3 drinking (i actually got cut off by the bartender!!) lol. anyways then we went back to the hostel and passed out, i think we woke our roomies too! lol
Brussels City Rating:
Total 7.5/10 but overall feeling not really that high
