Interrailing into Brussels: Day 2

Brussels,Interrailing,Travel.Posted June 26, 2018. 455 words.

Day two and we were off to an early start. We ate a buffet breakfast, talked to our hostel-mates, and ventured north.

We visited the Basilica and peeked inside. Finished in 1911, this modern cathedral is a marvel. Then we caught a train.

Then, off to the Atomium we went. It is huge and has fantastic views of the surrounding city. Then, we visited the ADAM museum and wandered around the Expo grounds. Most of the buildings have been long since destroyed or replaced, but the Chinese and Japanese pavilions are still intact. Or so we thought. Upon arriving in the gardens we find the Chinese pavilion boarded up and the Japanese pavilion inaccessible. Light research reveals that they were both closed five years ago as they were starting to fall apart. A shame.

In the evening we cook a fry up, and play a few games of pool.
