Voice of Travelers to Belgium

Belgium was my best vacation ever

I had been feeling really tired and run-down with my job, so I bought myself a cheap ticket to Belgium from Italy. Belgium is not always at the top of the list for tourist plane tickets, so I was excited to see what Belgium had to offer. I was very pleasantly surprised with the price of my Lufthansa ticket to Belgium, and I received excellent service the whole way, from both airports. The flight to Belgium was a little long, but we got a movie and a meal for our ticket, so that made the time pass. Once I landed in Belgium I took advantage of the cheap tour tickets that were available to go on many guided tours of Belgium. I saw the historical cities of Belgium and the countryside, all for very low price tickets. It was a great vacation in Belgium and I bought myself a ticket to feeling relaxed at work again.

Belgium is a cool country to visit

I had been planning my tour of Western Europe for many years, so I was very excited when I finally bought my ticket to Belgium for the first part of my trip. I bought a first class ticket with Delta Airlines for my trip over the ocean from New York because I did not want an economy ticket for a really long flight. The flight was very nice, and I got to eat good food and sleep comfortably, which was definitely worth the extra price for the ticket to Belgium. I saw many of the historical sites in Belgium with tour tickets and bought many reasonably-priced tickets to museums and other cultural events in Belgium as well. Belgium ended up being my favorite part of my trip to Europe, and I was so glad that I saved up for the ticket over there for so long.

Belgium is a great place to have your wedding

My wife suggested that we have our wedding in Belgium because she has a lot of family there. I do not have much family in Germany, so it seemed like a good idea. I bought us two first class tickets to Belgium with Ryanair, which were a good price during the busy tourist season. Our flight was very pleasant on our first class tickets, and the captain of the plane announced that we were getting married and we all celebrated with champagne. When we landed in Belgium we bought shuttle tickets out to the hotel where we would be staying. We had family coming from all over Belgium, as well as many friends who bought tickets to Belgium from all over the world. It was an unforgettable wedding in Belgium.
