Architectural bites from Antwerp

We are so blessed to have an amazing summer in Belgium. This makes for some great evening walks, getting lost on the streets from our place to the center of Antwerp.

I love architecture and Belgium is definitely a great place for that. I always bump into people, because I’m too busy looking up to the buildings.

Last evening we took a longer way to the center and back and we were not disappointed, although ended up going though one of the doggy sides of the city.

I noticed quite a few houses had animal statues on top of their roofs. Not sure if it’s suppose to tell a story about the house or the builders just fancied them.

Next, we passed by The Central Bank, an abandoned gate (I suppose) and caught sight of the moon and the walls of Antwerp’s central train station.

I still hope for some nice weather before the autumn rains set in. But for that we will have to wait and see.
