The best thing about exploring new places is that one is technically never lost, simply because every turn is an exciting find πŸ™‚ Oftentimes in discovering a place (in this case, Antwerp) we would be led down one street, and the next, and the next, by nothing more than a sense of wonder and an insatiable curiosity. And it usually started off by seeing something small but interesting…

L1140302…that eventually popped us out onto the beautiful medieval square of the Grote Markt…

L1140331…then led us around a side street of Antwerp Cathedral to find this charming brass sculpture of men building the cathedral…

L1140323…then down another street to pop into a store of hand made Belgian lace…

L1140356…that turned out to be the home of an artist who had opened his gallery for viewing…

L1140388…which took us down to the cellar and out to a space filled with amazing paintings…

L1140392…then back out on the street. Don’t you find that it’s always exciting to find out what lies just around the corner?
