Some notes to myself on Antwerp.
Honestly although I'm sure I'd heard the name before I don't think I'd ever really thought about Antwerp. When I mentioned to a friend I was visiting Europe she invited me to her wedding party in Antwerp so I headed on over.
Antwerp is a pretty nice place to visit for a few days. It's relatively small. You can pretty much walk all of it with no transportation although there are trams, subways, and busses if you'd prefer not to walk too far.
