Every even-numbered year, for a week, in August, Brussels' beautiful Grand Place is even more stunning. The ground is covered in 600,000 flowers, creating a unique pattern.
Thousands of visitors flood the market square to capture the perfect photo of the Flower Carpet. Last year, I managed to have it almost entirely to myself, by getting up with the sun.
Arrive at Grand Place before 7am and you too can have this peaceful experience. If you're lucky, like me, you may even catch the golden sun shining on Brussels' Town Hall.
The next Flower Carpet is in 2014.
