The Cost of One Week in Belgium


After the Netherlands, we ventured into Belgium, where we met up with some friends we had made way back in New Zealand! We gorged ourselves on chocolate, waffles, beer, and french fries; and yes, we played even more board games–they really are the best way to pass a rainy afternoon.

Note: Most of our purchases were on the credit card, but some were made in cash. To get an accurate approximation of how much in USD we spent, I used the exchange rate that our cards gave us on the day on or nearest to the date that our cash purchase was made.

Bonjour, Belgique!
