5 things to do when visiting Antwerp

Antwerp is one of those cities I can always return to. It feels like a second home, because teenaged Milou used to pop over the border for some retail therapy. It would take me only half an hour later of train travel until I found myself walking towards the Meir and leaving again a few hours later with quite the collection of shopping bags and an empty bank account.
