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?

A slightly strange appreciation for sacks

While in Vietnam, we visited a feed plant (why yes, my life is super glam!) and I developed a slightly strange appreciation for sacks, as demonstrated below. Finding beauty in the most unexpected places means that life is never dull or boring. Or so I like to tell myself.20150203-GY7C7832 storyboard-65storyboard-66storyboard-69storyboard-6720150203-GY7C7857storyboard-68 20150203-GY7C7879 storyboard-70
