Today I would like to share with you all... a short view into a shopping adventure. Instead of shopping in the exhausting and killing heat, why not go shopping somewhere the sun isn't looking to suck all the energy out of you? Wijnegem Shopping Center has 240 stores, many restaurants to choose from.. and here's the kicker: all with air-conditioning.
This shopping center is easily accessible with public transport or by car and, lucky for me, it wasn't crowded at all.. even though you currently have the summer sales. I suppose I should thank the sun for that one. The stores aren't hard to find within the center as they are divided into categories and there's a big map explaining where you can find whatever it is you're looking for. How ideal?!
It has both national (belgian) and international stores! As you can see on the picture above. I figured I might as well add my very simple shopping outfit in here.. so there you go. Yes, I know it's indoors.. I only put my sunglasses on for the picture. As you see I don't wear a lot of accessories (well, I don't in general, but even less in this heat) and I have a major tan line on my arms.. due to my lovely black summer dress.
I had lunch at the "Lunch Garden" as I had seen lots of advertisements about it, but never really knew what it was. So, I was curious to find out, but it really was like my University's student cafeteria.. except it looked a bit more luxurious and that was also seen in the price! Still, nothing crazy expensive and the food wasn't too bad.
Well, there you go. This wraps up my shopping adventure at Wijnegem Shopping Center. Oh, wait. Were you expecting to see my "shopping haul"? I'm saving that for another post.. so coming soon :)
Have you had your shopping spree already? Or are you waiting for the last week of the summer sales? Do you feel like visiting Wijnegem Shopping Center yourself? Here's more information!
