So, our InterRail trip comes to an end. We used the last day of the ticket getting from Amsterdam to Brussels and then we decided to spend two days here and then get a late afternoon Eurostar back to London. Then, we were homeward bound. Sad times.
We arrive not too early, we head to the metro and make our way to the BnB we’d booked. Located near the Brussels Expo, the trip began to end well as we passed a “you are now leaving Brussels” sign on the way. We checked in, dumped our bags, grabbed our umbrellas and gathered all our leftover energy for a last city visit, rain and all. The map we had, had split Brussels up into three sections, perfect, we could plan our trip around each part and start with the nearest part. This was where the Expo, Atomium that area was.
We had a short look around Atomium, which wasn’t too thrilling and then we couldn’t resist miniature Europe, just out of curiosity to see if we had seen any of the places. Turns out we hadn’t and it was then that we realised that what we thought with the Arc de Triomphe was actually not. I’d share photos, but by this time in the trip the camera had been washed up on a beach, dropped multiple times and then accidentally washed under the taps in the toilets by Kris. Needless to say, the photo quality had been a little downgraded.
From Miniature Brussels we then ventured out into the real thing and spent the first day wandering around the EU area and finally got to visit a Natural History Museum that was open. Whatever, Germany.
After half a day of attractions, the rest of the trip was spent milling around and taking in the last sites before returning to reality.
And that, is the end of our trip. The Eurostar to London, then another train home from London and then to bed, for many many hours.
