Belgium!

I'm back from a very exhausting but awesome trip in Belgium. Though we had less than 6 hours of sleep everyday, I'm very happy/grateful I got to go. We visited NATO, Reuters, the European Parliament, European Commission and European Council in three days. We also sat through actual press conferences (including the breaking news for Ukraine!), a lot of briefs from spokesperson and even talks from European politicians. The fourth/last day was our free day so we went to do some little exploration, shopping and a lot of eating. We didn't manage to do much cause none of us had any energy tbh. And our legs were killing us.. actually, mine hurt so bad when I finally woke up this afternoon. It's honestly been mentally and physically draining but I know this is a rare chance and I really appreciate all the efforts our lecturers put in to make this possible. Thank you again :)

Oh did I remember to mention that we had to go through a least 6 security checks everyday? It's as strict as the ones at the airport.. some were even worse. Most of the guys got properly frisked at a daily basis LOL. Well, here's a few pictures that I've taken. Belgium is honestly beautiful.

  9. Beautiful photos! I've been to Belgium before and it's such a wonderful place. There's something very romantic about European cities don't you think? It's like they're part of another time period (especially architecture-wise).
