    As every year we took a plane, rented a car and away looking for historic places, the firm at the past and little wonders little known. We landed at Brussels airport for heading to the Netherlands. Breda and some villages in the North to visit small castles, the waterways of this region and windmills. Down to the Belgium to visit Antwerp, the pearls of Flanders Ghent and Bruges and heading to Brussels from where you can get to medieval castles, historic houses, but especially the famous Waterloo. Pleasant journey, great food, historic places, towns between nature and history but also small niggles that do not make it easy to travel to tourists.
