In late 2015 I went for the first time of my life to Belgium... for a very short time, 24 hours actually. The only city I got to see and walk in was Brussels.

I'll likely update this article in the future when I get the chance to go back to Belgium.

When I went there, it was shortly after the November 2015 Paris attacks. The police was actively looking for terrorists in Brussels, troops were deployed and basically nobody was out there in the streets. The atmosphere was somehow surreal and very strange. I stayed the night in Brussels and left the city the following morning so my experience is very limited. Yet, here is my advice, for what it's worth.
