We have been back in Brussels since Sunday and everything is fine! The sun has been shining for the last two days, and even though we have woken up to grey skies this morning, maybe the sun will come out in a few hours (I hope). The magnolias are almost in bloom, the cherry trees definitely are and I have fallen in love with some areas of Brussels that I didn’t know before. Maybe we will end up living there…
House-hunting so far has been mostly driving around looking at different neighbourhoods and checking out houses for sale from the exterior – today we will actually visit some of them. Driving in Brussels has always been frustrating but yesterday was extreme; all the roads seemed to be either under construction (+ all the tram lines that are being refurbished all over the city) or one-way, or both… The round-abouts we enjoy though, something that don’t exist on the other side of the Atlantic*!!
Yesterday evening we had dinner with our French-Greek group of friends, in our favourite Thai restaurant Le IIeme element. So lovely and we have already planned two weekend trips with them – Normandie at Pentecost at the end of May, just like three years ago, and then Sweden for Midsummer’s Eve in June. This is what I love about living in the middle of Europe – the trips that you can take without spending too much money! We will drive to Normandie, and the plane tickets to Copenhagen in June were 150 EUR return!
Unfortunately I can’t show you any photos since the hotel doesn’t have wireless in the rooms and only O’s work computer is connected to the internet. I will try to add some photos as soon as possible.
Now, a big hotel breakfast before we head out to visit some houses!
*) I think that I have seen one round-about in Puerto Rico!
