I’m rubbish at being a tourist. Most of the time I don’t even try. I went to Reykjavík and didn’t visit the Blue Lagoon. I went to Sydney and didn’t see the Opera House. I’ve been to Barcelona four times and I’ve still never gone near La Sagrada Familia.
Instead, I mostly wander around and take pictures of walls.
I also checked out what was on offer at the flea market, safe in the knowledge that I wouldn’t buy anything – not only because I have no money to spare, but because I have no room in my luggage either.
Finally, here’s the Manneken Pis, standing in for all of Brussels’ conventional tourist attractions. He was dressed as a plumber.
