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?

I love this picture something silly

My little brother and his little girl.

He didn’t even notice me taking the picture. I just saw the scene and quickly snapped. A second later, he had turned around and the picture was gone. But I got it. The focus and the framing are spot on. I’m very pleased with myself. I’m not usually this lucky with my pictures. Day 5 in France.
