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?

More Sevilla

There’s never too much Sevilla, after all. I think this was day 2. And the crazies were out in force.storyboard-80 storyboard-81 storyboard-82Early morning light… On our way the Alcazar (also known as the Kingdom of Dorne, apparently).storyboard-8320150405-GY7C9161storyboard-85storyboard-84 20150405-GY7C920220150405-GY7C9201Seville is one of my favorite places on earth, and the Alcazar, right in the middle of the old town, is one of my favorite places in Seville.  I hope this gives you an idea of how much I loved it.storyboard-86Loonie child.
