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?

30 October 2014 - 4:43 AM ingrid - Thank you Cass. I have a dream that one day my daughter and I will visit France and we will be able to find corners like these to lose ourselves in. I love the juxtapositions here..that remind us that while different..life has so many similarities. xxoo. Thank you for taking me on short little trip..it really is my dream to share that with my girl.

30 October 2014 - 5:20 PM Cass - How old is your girl Ingrid? I kind of feel like maybe we should meet up when our daughters turn 13 and do a little road trip through rural France together. I'm definitely sure we (and they!) need to meet one day!
