I’ve been in and out of Antwerp for almost 2 months, and I don’t have a single post on it! Shame on me. But it’s also mainly because we just do normal family stuff here — birthday parties, simple meals out, shopping, and running errands. But today, mum and I went on a mini excursion to one of the largest parks in Antwerp.
We wanted to do a day trip to Bruges, but the return train tickets are a whopping €29 each. So we stayed in Antwerp, and took a straight De Lijn public bus (€1.40 per trip) from Sis’ home to Rivierenhof park.
Belgian weather is pretty erratic. It started drizzling heavily when we arrived even though the weather app indicated otherwise when we checked it a couple of hours ago. So we took shelter in the lovely Rivierenhof castle.
The interiors were beautiful, but the restaurant’s cappuccino and chocolate ice cream weren’t great though.
After that, we took our time and spent the entire afternoon exploring the enormous park on foot.
