What if you could see everything in Belgium and still have time to indulge in waffles and enjoy a worry-free vacation?



Good news! You absolutely can!



But what if you are...


Being overwhelmed with the planning process. You probably don't even know where to start. What are the “must-sees” spots in Belgium? How to see them? Can I see them on my own or should I pay for tours? Where should I stay? Spend more time in Ghent or Bruges? Should I include Wallonia too?

Feeling like you want to see everything, but not knowing how to fit it in. You’re coming a long way to get to Belgium. Of course, you want to see as much as possible, but you also want to feel like you’ve had a vacation when you get back home. How are you supposed to do it all?

Not being sure how to go about planning each day. How to make the most of my time without feeling exhausted? How many things can I really see? What can I skip? What are the things that I should see first? Planning an itinerary is stressful.

Want to skip the stressful part and just start dreaming of...


Spend time wandering through the most scenic streets of Belgium. Find the very best ones for photography, shopping or history buffs.


Only go on Belgium's very best excursions. Don’t waste your money or time on tours and activities that aren’t absolutely amazing.


Dine at some of Belgum's most fabulous restaurants. From local gems to fine dining, don’t waste your money at tourist traps.


Don't spend your time driving all day. You'll actually enjoy Belgium without spending more time in the car than on the beach.

Hola, I’m Paulina


​Now, who is this Belgium fan? I'm Paulina and I write at the travel blog paulinaontheroad.com. I lived 3 years in Belgium and got to know the best and most beautiful corners of both Flanders and Wallonia. Even now that I don't call Belgium my home anymore, I still visit as often as I can.


With my articles about Belgium on the blog, I helped tens of thousands of readers to plan their trip to Bruges or Brussels. As a former professional travel planner, I love sharing my Belgium vacation planning expertise with people.​


When people are planning their Belgium holiday, they often don't know where to start. The country is not very big, but extremely diverse. Distances are not large but the roads can be very winding. Thus it's important to plan your getaway wisely. 


If you only have limited time, it's important to know that you don't need to see it ALL. From my years of living in (and visiting) Belgium, I've seen and done pretty much everything, so I've already filtered the sights for you. You don't actually need to see everything. You only need to see the best!


I'll let you know what you HAVE to do, what you can skip, and the best order to do things in. So, leave your planning worries behind and enjoy the mesmerizing variety of Belgium.
