One of the biggest highlights was our hotel, Boulevard Leopold. I can't recall where I found their website, but I'm glad I did as it was the catalyst for me booking time off and the flights... I absolutely loved the comfortable feel and perfect style of the house, which dates from 1890. I'd move in in a flash... if I could!
On the day we arrived, we found ourselves in the right neighbourhood and paid a visit to the very lovely Mieke Willems. I could've spent hours browsing the shelves full of desirable goods in this small, but perfectly formed, store. I picked up some o-check design graphic check tape in red, a cute cloud pen and a cheerful pop-up clown card both from millimetermilligram, along with a copy of Bruno Munari's Roses in the Salad.
So many other things to see, do, eat and drink. I'm already wondering when we can return...
