Initially, our plan was to spend two nights in Nuremberg, Germany—departing from Brussels.  Due to snowy conditions, train cancellations and a mix-up with our train passes, K and I were the lucky couple to spend almost an entire day in the Brussels-Midi Train Station—probably one of the most depressing transportation hubs on the planet.  Low ceilings, bone-chilling cold temperatures, gray and black everything, crazy people yelling at vending machines and a fee (€0.50) to use the bathroom.  Needless to say, we never made it out of Brussels that day, but that’s the way it goes with winter travel…you just don’t know.

  1. I would imagine Nuremberg was a welcome sight after your fiasco in the Brussels-Midi Train Station(but once again a descriptive blog none-the-less). A fee to use the bathroom? Wow – I would have cut back on my water intake for fear of going broke!
