Brussels

Visited Brussels during the weekend with my fellow training colleagues, took a few pictures as I wondered around the old city. Brussels to me, is much slower in pace, people are more relax here as compared to Germany. Food is great! Love waffles pairing with poached egg and goat cheese at Peck's 47, when coupled with a Hot chocolate it strikes the right chord during the cold winter morning. Love the old city, the history and the vibe, but not a big fan of museum hence I skipped all those and just enjoying the moment roaming mindlessly and people watching.

Beirut

Beirut, the capital city of Lebanon, not exactly the top destination in my travel bucket list, due to religious tension and unrest, many recent bombings and close proximity with countries that aren't exactly well known for peacefulness and most of the time famous and being in the limelight of media for the wrong reason such as Syria and Israel.

Nevertheless, my job brought me there and being in Beirut is indeed an eye opener and clear off many of my prejudice towards the country. 

It is a very beautiful country facing the Mediterranean Sea and back by mountains.  According to the locals is one of the very few countries that you can actually do both activity of skiing in the Alps and sunbath at the beach.  The pictures speak for itself.
