Will do, I previously posted that the Eurostar review and the Brussels trip write up will be done today, whilst that remains true I have decided to publish one on Tuesday and the other on Friday.
I consider England and Wales to be different countries so for me to take a train from north Wales to the capital, Cardiff, I have to cross the England/Wales border at least 4 times. :O
(When I publish a post my Blog gets lots more visitors than normal so I decided to spread them out to maintain interest. :D)

Very sly, but it worked – I’m hooked!

Another great post!
About Grand Place, was there an accessible toilet? What was the cobblestone like in a wheelchair? Really bumpy?

I didn’t find the cobblestones too bad.
Ah, accessible toilet, I forgot to mention in my blog that I didn’t find a single accessible toilet all day whilst I was out! The only ones I found in Brussels were in my hotel room and at the railway station. :/
At the toilets in the railway station for the able-bodied toilets you had to purchase a ticket (€1?) which you used to get through a turnstile, for the disabled one there was a button by the door to press and someone would come to open it. (When I needed it someone with the key happened to be walking by so I don’t know what the wait is like.)

Good to hear that you plan to visit Antwerp (and maybe some other Flemish cities, too?). Please let me know if I can help with anything. I work for Visit Flanders

Thanks for the great info!

I think I visited the ‘Visit Flanders Visitors Centre’ but did not notice they had accessible toilet.
Is it the place just around the corner from The Sister bar?
I hope next year to visit Antwerp for the zoo, and maybe Plankaendaal too. I also have a Turkish friend who lives in Ghent. 🙂

That’s the place, indeed. I agree that it should be indicated better.
Antwerp, Mechelen (Planckendael) and Ghent: sounds like a great tour! Keep me posted, here or on accessible-at-visitflanders.com.
