We'll be rubbing elbows with towering cathedrals and cozy streets (try saying that after a few Belgian beers), all while taking in the sights, sounds, and smells of this living fairy tale. 🌊 And don't forget the canals! We've got more of those than Venice (well, almost), and they're the watery arteries that keep the city's charm flowing.
