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?

Before I go

I went to Budapest this week. It was stunning. But these two will always be my favorite view. Amélie insisted we go for a walk in the arboretum together, as a family, before I left. The weather is just so beautiful at the moment… And this would have been the perfect fairytale picture. Would have been except that Charlie found a bit of old tile that he decided looked enough like a gun to spend the next half hour pretending to shoot everything in sight. Sigh.
