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?


Early morning in Trinidad, California. 

Sleeping amongst the redwoods at the Trinidad Inn is one of my most cherished memories of our whole trip. If you’re ever driving through, stop there: you won’t regret it. And if you’re not driving through, make the detour! They’ll prepare a little fire-pit for you in your very own garden every day so that you can sit, at night, roasting marshmallows and listening to the quiet of your surroundings. It was a dream!
