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?

Walking Amongst Giants

One of the most inane conversations I’ve ever had was with a colleague who told me that he never travelled because why bother? A tree’s a tree wherever you go in the world, isn’t it? Well no. Not these trees. They are ancient giants that tower above us, powerful and proud. The few that remain. The last stand. They are not just trees. They are mighty, awe-inspiring beasts. And I’m so glad we got to see them.
