Under $100 / Europe

Start your day with breakfast at L’Equilibre. It makes great club sandwiches. We recommend the Italian Club made from Italian ham, eggplant, Parmesan, pesto, and arugula, with soup of the day and bread ($10).

 

The next stop is the Musical Instruments Museum ($11). This is a great stop for music lovers as it is part of the Royal Museum for Art and History and displays more than 8,000 musical instruments. Visitors are given infrared headphones to listen to music from more than 200 musical instruments.

 

Head to Brussels Park, walk around and mingle with the locals before heading to the Royal Palace, your next stop. The Royal Palace is the official palace of the King and Queen of Belgium, but does not serve as their home. Walk around the building and explore the Neoclassical architectural design.

 

Tonton Garby is a cheese and sandwich shop and your lunch stop for the day. Order the sandwich you’d like to try as they’re all great and your choice smoothie, which should cost no more than $12.

 

Walk over to the Grand Place, where you’ll find city hall with a Gothic design. This square has a lot to offer, from bars and restaurants to a chocolate museum. Head to Broodhuis Brussels to explore the museum and the artwork inside ($8).

 

Fin de Siecle is your dinner location. Order the jamboneau à la moutarde (knuckle in mustard sauce), one of the specialties with your choice wine ( $30).

 

End your night dancing at Madame Moustache while listening to music. This is free on weekdays and can range $6–8 on weekends. Prepare to be greeted by men dressed as sailors.

Nowadays, loungewear is so popular and in demand with everyone working from home; there are so many different brands and types to choose from, but a new one just hit the shelf. Chrissy Teigen is known for many things, specifically her cookbook Cravings.

Seek Wellbeing in Greece

The Greek tradition of health and wellness runs deep; travelers can find a multitude of therapies to meet their wellbeing needs, from healing spas, herbal therapies, hypnotherapy, massages and more. In Greece, the approach to wellness focuses on the “whole” and the ways in which the mind, body and soul interact. A state of balance is achieved through a good relationship between the emotional and natural state, which can be found throughout Greece at its more than 800 medicinal spas.
