Hotel accommodations was provided by Sleep Well Youth Hostel. Bonjour Blogginners, we are in Brussels, Belgium, and we’re going to show you the fun things you can do here. We’re starting our day by having breakfast at Sleep Well Youth Hostel. Then we took a short walk to the train station to ride to our first destination. Our first stop is Mini Europe. This is the only park where you can visit the whole of Europe in a couple of hours. First were greeted by the mascot. We were handed a booklet filled with information on the countries of the European Union. Brother is so excited to be here. Hey, look how big you grew! There’s a total of 350 sets and models here. The first section is Denmark. Hello boats. Can we touch those? Now we’re in Sweden. The next one is Finland. I’m pushing a button to activate the animation. This is Estonia, but I’ve never heard of that country before. Now I’m going to press it. Oh, you can hear the national anthem of Estonia. Now we’re at the Netherland. More half the area of the Netherlands lie below sea level. Belgium is next and that’s where we’re at. And we climbed this Belfort tower just a few days ago. It had 366 steps. We’re jumping across the English Channel. We’re in the UK now. Next is London, and we will be going there…soon. This is the Big Ben, I mean the Mini Ben. Brothers becoming a Redcoat. I’m running to see more exhibits. Here’s the White Cliffs of Dover and the Eiffel Tower. Bonjour! We’re in France! No, it’s “Bonjour”, because people in France have their nose plugged. So it’s “Bonjour.” Brother and I are running very fast on the map to control the figures in a chase. We’re looking at even more landmarks of France, and this one you can see a gargoyle on the roof. Let’s follow it. This is Portugal. Oh, no, there’s a giant attacking the castle. Now we’re at Spain. Music. For this display, the volume of our voice controls the bull. Ole! I’m watching the firefighters put out the fire at the refinery. And now, a montage. Now I’m going to press the button. I’m going to tear down the wall. There’s even a piece of the real Berlin wall here. Luxembourg is the next country. And look how small it is. We’re at…Slovakia! Next is Hungary and I’m getting hungry! Very hungry. Now it’s my turn to become tall. I’m watching the space shuttle blast-off. Lastly, we’re visiting European Space, where we can learn more about the European Union. I am drawing a new slogan for Europe. Moo. Hey, the turtle snatched my drawing! He’s putting it on the wall for the whole world to see. Before we leave let’s take a picture with the mascot. We had so much fun at mini Europe. Let’s go check out Atomium. This was the main pavilion and icon of the World Fair of Brussels in 1958. Come on, Brother. Let’s go check out the spheres. First we’re taking the elevator to the very top. Here you can get a 360 panoramic view of Brussels. We can see Mini Europe from here. We’re hopping back on the lift and taking it to the ground floor. Next we’re taking the escalator up to see the permanent display of Expo 58. We’re going up another level to see some models. Then we got on another escalator. It’s so dark here. We’re going up to a light show, I think. We’re going up to a light show. Wow! This room is very futuristic looking. That’s the nucleus of Atonium. Here comes the techno music. We’re climbing up the tube to the next sphere. In this room, you can see some photos from Expo 58. Brother and I are going to pop our faces in the spheres. We’re starting to descend the Atonium. We’re passing the kids room, which is available for field trips. Lastly we’re riding the escalator down to the ground floor. Don’t forget to visit the gift shop before you leave. We had so much fun at Atonium. The next stop is ADAM Brussels Design Museum, and this place is included with the ticket to Atonium. Founded in 2014, this museum offers an innovative insight on plastic design from the 1950s to the present. Come on, Brother, let’s go check out the exhibits. Something smells like feet here. This chair looks like someone. Like you’re sitting on someone. The inside of the sphere looks pretty cool. Here are some more design pieces. We had so much fun here. We’re taking the train to our next destination. Throughout our entire trip in Belgium, we’ve been using nice video to connect to the Wi-Fi to research the shortest route to all our attractions. Our next stop is Train World. This museum features the most beautiful and unique pieces from the history of Belgian railways. Come on brother, let’s go see the exhibits. I’m scanning my ticket to get in. We’re picking up a scavenger hunt. I found the first object. Brother is writing down the secret letter from this station, and punching a hole in his activity card. We’re walking to the main exhibit hall. There are many classic trains here. I’m walking on the railroad tracks. Brother, why are you wiggling in front of the screen? I’m pressing a button to see the rail network of Belgium. We’re climbing aboard an engine. There’s the cheese. We found another object, and we’re marking it down on our sheet. We’re entering another room with more trains. We’re trying to find that thing. This is a medic room. Oh, I see it! It’s on there. As we find more objects, we’re able to complete the secret message that gives us a clue on where the treasure is hidden. Now we’re searching everywhere for the loot. Congratulations, you have found the treasure. Let’s take a picture to capture this moment. Next, we stopped by a room with model trains. Lastly, we turned in our scavenger hunts for some prizes. This is the best train museum I’ve ever been to. Let’s head to the next attraction. It’s time to check out the Old Masters Museum. This museum houses a remarkable collection that covers a period running from the 15th to 18th centuries. What can I can do? I can spin around. Why did they put the bird on the floor? We have less than an hour. So we’re just gonna look at the highlights from the Old Masters. I think I recognize this one. We found the first painting. This is Eve holding an apple. And we found the second one on here. And here are the next two. This painting shows angels battling a bunch of creepy looking creatures. The last painting is very sad. It shows a woman that committed suicide. But these pigs brighten the mood. Look at this painting. There’s a whole bunch of mini paintings in this painting. Whoever painted this must had a really hard time. Because I’d hate to paint that. Brother spotted a painting that made him giggle. I can see the angel’s butt. Lastly, I’m going to play with an interactive display. Now let’s get something to eat. Brother must have Asian food, so we’re getting some Thai noodles for dinner. But tomorrow, no Asian food. Hey, look here’s Mannequin Pis and the Atonium made of chocolate. Brussels day 2 is now in the books. Stay tuned for part 3. I am a British Redcoat. And I have a very funny hat.
