What images spring to mind when you think of Belgium? Exactly! The majority of us think delicious chocolate, some maybe beer but for me it is chocolate of all sorts but most importantly of amazing deliciousness!
I am not exaggerating when I say there are chocolate stores everywhere! Literally on every corner you turn, when you walk down a street every third store is either chocolate, pastries, bread or sweets and biscuits. It makes no sense that Europeans are so slim with all these treats tempting them everyday! Yet it isn't just the tourists at the counters, locals pop in buying delectable tarts, breads and chocolates at a constant flow. If I lived in Europe I literally would not be able to fit through doorways.

A trendy city for the fashion conscious has delighted me with a gorgeous Stephen Jones millinery exhibit and numerous fantasies as I tried on exorbitantly priced but fabulous dresses by Matthew Williamson, helmet lang, Alexander Wang, when will the labels end... Never! The feeling of trying something on you have seen in the glossy pages of Vogue is indescribably satisfying.

So today has been filled with chocgasms every five minutes and lustful designer clothing I will hopefully one day be able to afford.

So here is to Antwerp and all the sins it has made me commit!

This is just a tiny proportion of chocolate that I have sampled...
Exercise may soon be increased in order to fit on the plane home!
