Brussels: A Week In The Life Day 6 – Taken For A Ride

It’s Birthday do-over day!

With our handy Brussels Pass, we explore two museums but miss out on a third, thanks to being taken far in the wrong direction on a private bus tour. It was a classic case of being “lost in translation”, and we didn’t have the heart to correct the driver, as she was so sweet to try and take us to our destination in the first place!

Need to catch up on the week so far?

Day 1 – We get settled into our new housesitting gig.
Day 2 – We explore the Grand Plaza in Brussels
Day 3 – Michael arrives, and we take in the Belgium v. USA soccer game
Day 4 – We indulge in Belgian street food and have a wee dance party
Day 5 – Pete’s birthday is a gloomy one.

    Aww! This looks like a great birthday do-over. The face Pete makes after eating the mussel… I don’t think I’ve ever seen a happier person! Haha. I am loving this series!

    Despite going in the wrong direction, beer, comic books, waffles, and a stroll through the park seems like a good day!

    You don’t always get what you want – sometimes you get something even more interesting. Nice re-routing and you scored some interesting finds. 🙂
