Bubbles in Champagne to chocolates in Belgium

We went to a champagne house in Reims in the morning that was once under a church that was destroyed during the French revolution. It was the most impressive cellars and the best done tour. Why these caves really stand out is because they were initially chalk quarries dug by the Romans. The Romans would dig the quarries in a tear drop shape so they were easily covered and made into caves. They were then connected by tunnels to create one continuous champagne tunnel.

We left early the next morning from Champagne for Brussels. This is the place I planned out so I was extra exited when we arrived! The first day we went on a Hop on Hop off bus tour and explored the city on foot. There are a lot of chocolate shops, at least one every street and the same for waffle houses.

On the second day we went to an auto museum. There were very old cars there from 100 years ago up to almost present day! The type of cars were mostly sports cars and there were about 500 different cars. The other museum we went to was the national War and Army Museum, that was my favourite with full size airplanes and tanks of all kinds.

We did a walking tour of the comic strip murals of Brussels combined with a chocolate walking tour guided by Daddy, it was interesting to see how big the murals were. I am really loving Brussels and all of its chocolate shops as well as the amazing old architecture, look up the Grand Place of Brussels, it is incredible!

I really enjoy reading your encouraging comments, thank you so much!
