Nothing is booked yet, but I'm planning on stopping over in Belgium for 3 nights on my way from Amsterdam to Paris. I plan on taking the Thalys train, but have not purchased a ticket yet. I'm interested in Antwerp, Bruges, Ghent, and plan on at least seeing the Grand Place in Brussels (and maybe doing a chocolate making class) before I take the Thalys down to Paris.
Where should I stay?
What should I do?
I'm female, 27, traveling solo, and like beer, chocolate, biking, quaint towns, local culture.
