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?

Into the dark, dark woods…

We went for a long walk in the countryside. It was a little muddy. And then it got dark. Really quickly. And we walked the last couple of kilometers feeling more than seeing our way back to the car. It was fun (with hindsight).

Berlin – day 3 (with lightsabers)

OK, so day 3 started with me spotting this lovely backdrop of red which, as it turns out, was the garden of the North Korean embassy. Hanno waited until I had my camera out and then told Amélie that they’d probably come and shoot us for taking pictures. Amélie is incredibly gullible, thus the rather […]
