Spontaneity makes life more exciting and interesting! Just to be honest with all of you, I intended to stay in Paris for five days just to experience what it feels like to be a Parisian. I want to sit in a cafe with great ambiance whilst enjoying my hot chocolate and croissant, walk in the streets like a fashion model with loads of shopping bags and cuddle with that special someone in the city of love. These are just some of my imaginations of a perfect holiday trip to Paris. Unfortunately, it was raining during my entire trip in the city of love and because of it (and some reasons), I did not enjoy it as much as I wanted to. Thankfully, we had a spontaneous trip to Brussels, Antwerp and Bruges. It really gave me pure bliss.
It takes approximately three hours and a half to get to Brussels and since we are a group of nine and train tickets were overpriced, we decided to rent a van. I highly recommend to just rent a van if you will be in a large group of people. It is very convenient, reasonably priced and the best thing about it is that you can control your time and enjoy your stay. Moreover, there are other two affordable transportation options to choose from such as bus and carpool. I recently heard about 'BlaBlaCar', a company that offers long distance carpooling services at such great prices. It seems like it is also convenient and easy to book. I will try it next time and will definitely share my experience!
