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?

Que c’est beau le soleil!

My father has a little house in a village close to where my brothers live… We’d never really visited before so, this time, we got the grand tour. Of the house and the village. The grand tour of the village took about 10 minutes. It’s a very small village. But very pretty.

Then we went back to the house and played pétanque. Those photos will come in the next post. Day 6 in France.

21 October 2013 - 3:15 PM ingrid - I love when I come "visit" here and find all this beauty. It's like finally having the time to read that book you've been carrying in your satchel. Just like that..and then you just can't get enough.
