    Thanks!

    Seems kinda silly that the bar closes on the weekends!

    After you finish your Eurostar write up, please start a discussion here too!  I have so many questions!  I’m very jealous that you can take a train to different countries!

    Say hi to Mikey!

    Will do, I previously posted that the Eurostar review and the Brussels trip write up will be done today, whilst that remains true I have decided to publish one on Tuesday and the other on Friday.

    I consider England and Wales to be different countries so for me to take a train from north Wales to the capital, Cardiff, I have to cross the England/Wales border at least 4 times. :O

    (When I publish a post my Blog gets lots more visitors than normal so I decided to spread them out to maintain interest. :D)

    Very sly, but it worked – I’m hooked!

    The final part of my Brussels trip trilogy of blogs, a write up of the weekend, has now been published. 🙂

    Another great post!

    About Grand Place, was there an accessible toilet?  What was the cobblestone like in a wheelchair?  Really bumpy?

    I didn’t find the cobblestones too bad.

    Ah, accessible toilet, I forgot to mention in my blog that I didn’t find a single accessible toilet all day whilst I was out! The only ones I found in Brussels were in my hotel room and at the railway station. :/

    At the toilets in the railway station for the able-bodied toilets you had to purchase a ticket (€1?) which you used to get through a turnstile, for the disabled one there was a button by the door to press and someone would come to open it. (When I needed it someone with the key happened to be walking by so I don’t know what the wait is like.)

    FYI, visitors to Brussels can use the accessible toilet at the VisitFlanders visitors centre. Grasmarkt 61, very near Grand Place and Central Station.

    There’s also a useful website about Brussels: https://handy.brussels.

    Good to hear that you plan to visit Antwerp (and maybe some other Flemish cities, too?). Please let me know if I can help with anything. I work for Visit Flanders

    I think I visited the ‘Visit Flanders Visitors Centre’ but did not notice they had accessible toilet.

    Is it the place just around the corner from The Sister bar?

    I hope next year to visit Antwerp for the zoo, and maybe Plankaendaal too. I also have a Turkish friend who lives in Ghent. 🙂
