What is on your “wish list” for the time in Spain, Belgium & in between?

Brussels is so pretty.  You absolutely have to spend some time admiring the gorgeous art nouveau architecture throughout the city and just marvel at the magical Grand Place — IMO, the prettiest town square in all of Europe!  If you’re a beer drinker, then Belgium’s THE place to be.

You must go to Park Guel in Barcelona! It’s amazing. And in Paris, make sure you go to le Marais and get falafel–seriously the best I”ve had anywhere.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE europe! Mostly I love spain ( maybe because i just have amazing memories there) but I spent like 3 weeks with my Fiance there last year and there is so much to do.. we had both been there before so we were not in such a rush to do the tourist stuff again..we literally explored Madrid. Walked the streets from sun up to sun down.. had our ‘fav’ coffee shop..watched people walking up and down.. it was amazing and relaxing. If you will be in Madrid for a bit..don’t leave without going to Medina Mayrit! and there is this small restaurant called ‘Puerto Rico’ the food is GREAT the service is even better and the atmosphere is amazing! We frequented there often and its a local hot spot. oh! and pretty affordable!

ugh Please visit otehr cities in Belgium than Bru.  Bru is ugly.  Yes the square is nice see it, see the peeing boy, but anywhere out of the squre is ugly and you must look at the side walk at all times or you’ll be stepping in dog poop lots.

Go to Bruge or Gent – so much prettier, and Bruge has the best chocolate shop ever.  The chocolate line – amazing.

@babymilka74: I studied abroad in Toledo for a semester, and I LOVED it.  You should definitely swing by, since it’s only a 30 minute train ride from Madrid.

In Madrid, I highly recommend the Prado art museum if you like classical art.  If you’re more into modern art, check out the Reina Sofia… lots of Picasso and Dali, including Picasso’s masterpiece “Guernica” which is awe-inspiring to see in person, in my opinion.

Barcelona was my favorite Spanish city – it has so much personality and culture!  The food is amazing, too.

I recommend keeping an eye out for croquetas (fried potato/ham/cheese balls), tortilla espanola (potato omlette, pretty much), and sangria – can’t go wrong with any of those!
