Last year i started a ‘series’ (me posting whenever i feel like it about the same thing) all about bookish happiness and what bookish things have made me happy recently. My last post was a year ago, i cannot believe it was that long ago and i’m only just getting back in to writing these posts, but i feel like a happiness catch-up is in order for!

Earlier this year, in May, i travelled around Belgium for a few days with one of my friends. Belgium is a place that i’ve wanted to see for quite some time, and after seeing the stunning architecture and streets whilst researching, it was somewhere i couldn’t pass up seeing.
