Stampin Up European Convention - Day One

As many of you know I spent a few days in Brussels the other week at Stampin Up's European Convention. I left Belfast in the early hours of Thursday morning to travel to Dublin to catch my flight to Brussels. I had arranged to arrive in Brussels earlier than was necessary so I would have the chance to see a bit of the city while I was there.

I arrived in Brussels at lunchtime and checked into the hotel which was situated in a very posh area with lots of designer shops around. Our room was on the top floor and had a cute little arched window which looked out over the city.

 As I had travelled through the night, I had a quick nap while I waited for my room mate, Nicole to arrive. Once she arrived, we set off to explore the city.  Everywhere we looked there were beautiful building and gorgeous window displays.

 Before long we had worked up an appetite so we called into a local cafe where we had the most AMAZING waffles ever!

Soon it was time to head to the convention centre to check in and get our convention bags which included our free stamp sets and a souvenir pen and pin

Back in the hotel, Nicole and I stayed up late chatting and finishing off her swaps so it was quite late when we finally went to sleep.
Call back tomorrow to find out what we got up to on our second day of Convention.
