Mons, Belgium

Our last day in Belgium we stayed in Mons. A cute little town closer to the airport because we were flying out early the next morning. We stayed at the Dream Hotel which is an old church converted into a beautiful modern hotel. We didn’t have a lot of time in Mons but we walked around the pretty square did a little shopping in the shops lining the cobblestone streets.

Mons was actually really cool because it was not touristy at all. Everyone there seemed to be local except for us. There were many people who didn’t speak English like when we ordered dinner they only spoke French and we made it work. I loved the feeling of the town. And there was also fun yarn art on the lamp poles, trees, and the fountain. So fun.
We also saw the bell tower and a beautiful church called Saint Waltrude Collegiate Church. The outside alone is magnificent but go inside as well. It is awesome and free to enter. There were stones on the ground marking graves that were buried under the floor, dating back to the 1500s. The marble carvings, wood carvings, and the organs in the back were very unique. It is a lovely church.

We also saw some floral blossoms starting to pop on the trees! Spring is coming!!!!! Yay. Also we came across two really pretty street art murals. We didn’t see any street art in Brugge and if you have been following along for a while you might know that I love street art!

So yeah, a great little stay in a cute town.
Love, Carlee
