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?

I dream of VSCO (and of having better titles for my posts)

I’ve been playing in Lightroom and making up my own filmy, vintage-looking presets. Mostly because I can’t afford the ones I want from VSCO (here). If you want to buy them for me, you’d be more than welcome. If you buy them for yourself, on the other hand, then I stick my tongue out in your general direction. Anyway, here are some of the results. Taken on a very old train, just to add to the atmosphere. Photoshop used only to edit a couple of scratches off the windows. So what do you think?

PS: officially one of my favorite pictures of Hanno – never happier than when he’s on a train, looking out of the window.
