I love that we live so close to cities like Lille, Paris, Amsterdam and London. It only takes 30 minutes to get from Brussels to Lille by train and about an hour by car.
On Saturday we had lunch at a really great restaurant Fuxia l’Epicerie, located in the old town of Lille. The food was amazing and we all had too much of it. Both the homemade lasagne and risotto with truffles were excellent.
We spent the afternoon strolling around the city, visited the Christmas market and admired the festive lights and decorations. The area around the old town and place Rihour was especially pretty. The city of Lille really knows how to do Christmas and was a great destination to get us into the holiday spirit!
