We're going to one of Belgium's most interesting cities: Antwerp. According to folklore, the giant Antigoon lived near the Scheldt river. He exacted a toll from passing boatmen, and for those who refused, he severed one of their hands and threw it into the river. Eventually the giant was killed by a young hero named Silvius Brabo, who cut off the giant's own hand and flung it into the river. Hence the name Antwerpen: from Dutch hand werpen
, akin to Old English hand and wearpan (to throw), which has evolved to today's warp. This vibrant port city is teeming with old buildings, good beer and excellent food.
