Antwerp ~ Day One















































Despite the weather, our little mid-week trip to Antwerp was a clear triumph. Our first day mainly consisted of checking in to the beautiful Sir Plantin Hotel, then taking in the sights and the city, whilst obviously indulging in (many of) the delectable beers Belgium has to offer. 
A visit to the Mode Natie or MOMU to see the incredible first year calico creations was spectacular, you can see why the Royal Academy Of Fine Arts is so highly respected as an ultimate fashion institute, as well as the prestige from churning out the Antwerp six. 
Antwerp is a compelling city, for someone addicted to adrenaline and thrives on the buzz of fast-paced city life, this is the polar opposite, but there is something that captures me every time and I just want to keep going back for more.
