Rumour has it that there are over 10,000 chocolate shops in Belgium, and that it would take a full 6 months to tour all of them.
To this I say: challenge accepted.
(Remind me to pack my stretchy pants)
Eating chocolate is undoubtedly one of the most iconic things to do in Belgium, and Antwerp is the perfect place for that. Between the beautiful architecture of the train station, the history of diamonds, the Jewish quarter and the ancient squares, Antwerp doesn't disappoint.
And if somehow it does, make your way to DelRey, my favorite chocolate shop in the city. I visited several, and the owner of this particular one was extremely enthusiastic about his products, and more than willing to give me a free sample.
That may or may not have biased my judgement. I will never tell.
