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?


There is just something about the sea… The big, wild ocean. I’m drawn to it. Maybe it’s because I was born by the coast. It’s in my blood. It makes me feel calm and free. One day, I hope, I will live by the sea again.

9 February 2013 - 5:37 PM Ronnie Bell - This is an old friend of mine, though sometimes terrifying. I remember standing on a hill in GranCan with my daughter and looking out over the hazy sea. When she asked "What are you looking at?" I replied "That used to be my home out there." Were they really wasted years? Not really because they brought me here. ;o))
