Recommendations for Western Europe

Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria

Continuing my trip recap, here is a noninclusive list of a few of the places I saw in Western Europe* that I really loved. This list is shorter than the others as, even in winter, I found the charm of most of these places was in wandering through the narrow streets or along the canals and dropping whenever I needed a cup of coffee or something stronger. The list also doesn't include all of the places I was recommended but didn't have a chance to see, or the ones I saw and wouldn't recommend someone else to go to. These are places that I visited personally and would suggest to anyone else to visit as well.

*There is conflicting information out there about what exactly "Western Europe" means but, in trying my best to split it all up, this will do! I debated including Germany in this post but, having spent my time in Berlin and Dresden, I felt it would fit best with the Central Europe countries.
