Belgium is a hidden gem.

I was fortunate to call this tiny country home for a year as a Rotary exchange student. Most people who visit Belgium go to Bruges or Brussels; and while Brussels is grand and Bruges is simply charming, there’s a lot more to this country than meets the eye. Green rolling hills grace the countryside, dotted by stone farm houses. Exquisite farm-to-table food awaits you at any local restaurant. Friendly, quirky locals will gladly have a Belgian beer with you, and there are enough bike paths to find yourself simply... lost. Oh and did I mention the chocolate?  
And while I return year after year for the PEOPLE, I find the PLACE simply ENCHANTING!

Here are some of my most treasured images from Belgium.

Enjoy!
