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?

Up Close and Personal

Let’s take a breather from all that talking about me nonsense and step back in time a month or so for some pretty pictures.

These birds have completely lost their natural fear of humans. As a result, I had at least a couple of them on my head for each of these shots. Might explain why none of them were properly exposed. Thank goodness for Lightroom and RAW files! Oh, and while we’re still at Bristol Zoo, please let me introduce you to Mr Meerkat. He likes to sit on rocks and stare into the distance.
