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?

GAAAH! The light!

If only I could force myself to get up this early without having to screw with my body-clock by flying half way across the world…What is this strange and beautiful tree oh clever friends of mine? Could I grow it in rainy Belgium or is it exclusive to sunny California?

5 May 2014 - 10:33 AM Cass - Thank you Aga! I love that that's what the tree is called. I want to grow one. I wonder if I could start it in a pot on my balcony until I have built up enough courage to move again to somewhere with a garden.
