On Being Boring

I moved from London to Brussels with my husband nearly 10 years ago. When I told people we were moving, the news was greeted with bemusement: why did we want to move to a city that was possibly the most boring place on earth? Ten years later and I can honestly say that I've had more fun here than I ever did living in London. It might not be the most exciting city in the world but it is a fantastic place to live. It is full of hidden treasures that you probably never get to see as a tourist: wonderful shops, amazing food, great museums and galleries, beautiful architecture, a forest (yes, a whole forest), and so much more... And if that doesn't convince you, well, get on a train and you could be in Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne or, yes, London in no more than a couple of hours... Which other city can you say that about?

One of my favorite “secret” Brussels streets. It’s not really secret. It’s just not really known either. And I think it’s really pretty.And what do we have here? Oh yes: some random leaning buildings.And some more random buildings. Can you tell I lost my enthusiasm for these pictures a long time ago. Can you also tell I would make a terrible salesperson?Ah yes: Ralph considers his options. Personally I think the long blond curly one on the far left would have been perfect but whatever.
