One day, back in December, my friend Esther and I went on a little trip to Antwerp to go explore the city. Today I will be posting part two, as I posted part one a little while ago, where you can read a little more about my visit. It was a wonderfully jolly day spent eating Belgian waffles and running around in playgrounds!
