I was randomly surfing some travel sites the other day and came across this photo. I immediately recognized the town of Lier. I was there this summer unexpectedly after a number of missed flights, redirections and broken down trains and very expensive taxi rides. I realized that it is really quite a charming little town and that I wouldn’t mind going back someday.

On the Wiki page for Lier, Belgium it says that they are known for their beer. No kidding! I couldn’t find a restaurant when I was there — just lots and lots of bars full of men who stared at me. Where were the women? Yeah, I felt a little uncomfortable and kept searching until I was about to faint from lack of sustenance and exhaustion. However, I love a good adventure and would do it again!
