Trip to Liège

Like I told you guys last week, me and my boy took advantage of our free day on 11/11 to go for a small city trip within the borders of our own country: we visited Luik/Liège, and before going home we dropped by Leuven/Louvain for some sightseeing and pizzamunching. This was the first super cold day of fall over here so I was really glad I had packed an extra big chunky cardigan, just in case I wanted to go sans coat. Turns out I needed both. Coat AND cardigan AND faux fur scarf, and I was still freezing my butt off! The weather caught me off guard after our gorgeous indian summer, peeps.

Anyway, here's loads of pictures of our day trip. First up: a gorgeous bridge. Even the junkies under the bridge live in a palace down in Liège! Ok that was a terrible joke. Shame.

You can see the bridge I photographed far in the distance to the left. Obviously not to the right. God, talk about redundant.


Loved this statue here:


Stunning old cathedral downtown:


My eye was drawn to the gorgeous leaves all over the city. Fall is so fieeeeerce


And when my fingers went numb, we hopped into an old café that for coffee (boy) and tea (moi). Haha you totally pronounced it boy and moi (literally instead of french-style), RIGHT? 

 The browns, couches and woodwork reminded me of antique trains, very cozy.


We passed a big carnival while walking around and I fell in love with the classic merry-go-round. I only had a few seconds to snap pictures because we were about to cross the road, but I'm glad I did.


God how long is this post? I still have Louvain to show you guys! Hope you're enjoying yourself so far :-D

And then there was Leuven!

The first thing I saw when stepping out of the car in Louvain was this:


MORBID MUCH


Love these roofs all over the city.


But I saved the best for last: the town hall of Louvain is a masterpiece of gothic architecture. Dozens of intricately carved statues decorate the walls. I WISH THIS WERE MY HOUSE


And then some P-to-tha-zza. Rocket salad, ricotta and salami on a crunchy, ultra thin base. Nomz!


I do not condone BNP PARIBAS.
