Antwerpen and Sint Niklaas Day 2

I hope everyone is ready for another monster of a post…


Eric and I slept pretty late on Sunday but we had a big day ahead of us and swung by the market to grab some bread before going to the train station.



Our main plan for the day was to go to the small town of Sint Niklaas for a beer festival, but our train went through Antwerpen so we got off and explored for a few hours.

Even the train station was really pretty.

Antwerpen was a hopping and a bustling for a Sunday afternoon so we just kind of followed the crowds and did a lot of walking and exploring.

Eric even found his hero!

And I am making it my goal to take a picture with every fry man I find!

Before boarding the train to Sint Niklaas we stopped at Subway. And we got a 5 EURO 30 CENTIMETER LONG!! Not as catchy as 5 dollar footlong though.



Then we made our way to the beer festival! It was out of control. Beers were cheap and you got a full glass. Dangerous.


Funny story, we were on the train to the festival and this guy comes up to us to ask if we are going to Sint Niklaas and if we know about some beer thing there. We start talking with him and he ends up being our buddy for the rest of the night. He was from Brasil and has been traveling around Europe for a few weeks.

I’m thinking about starting a Kale Riders gang, I will start accepting applications soon.


Towards the end things started to get a little funny. Everyone was tipsy and extremely friendly. We got to know a few locals.

It was a late night and I think we caught the last train back to Brussels!
