Greetings from Antwerp, Belgium!
Already four months in this diverse Flemish city have passed. Time flies when you spend your days studying, travelling, drinking beer, eating fries and chocolate and exploring this beautiful port city with new friends.
Antwerp is the second biggest city in Belgium and is located on the river Scheldt. With the population over 500 000 inhabitants and over 170 different nationalities, Antwerp is truly one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world.
Since Antwerp is the city with most pubs/ bars per inhabitant, you can never get thirsty in here. Pubs selling excellent Belgian beers are in every street corner. And so are Frituurs, typical restaurants selling Fries with mayonnaise and all other delicious sauces I just have to try!
Besides good beers and food, Belgium is also a nice country because of its central location within Europe. So far I have traveled to the Netherlands, Italy and Spain besides traveling inside Belgium. During my last month I’m still going to see Germany, Luxembourg and England.
Since the rainy and windy Antwerp weather is finally turning into summer, I’m going to enjoy my last weeks here by chilling and spending a lot of time outside with friends.
