Packing, trying Ethiopian food, Flagey lake, World Cup in Grand Place
Ahh! I can't believe I've been in Brussels for over a month and haven't shared anything yet, I really wanted to document every moment of this new little adventure I'm on. I got to Brussels on July 1st and had a perfect first week with the boyfriend. He really showed off Brussels and left a good impression. The first few weeks I was here he was so busy in work with the World Cup, but the atmosphere in the city was amazing! Some of the things I've really enjoyed this month: trying new foods, having picnics by the lake in Flagey, celebrating our anniversary and watching the World Cup in Grand Place Square - they turn the square into a stadium during the Belgium games and everyone gathers to watch it together.

My "office", Galerie Royale Saint Hubert, Grand Place at the weekend, BBQ evening
This has been one of my favourite weeks! We went out with new friends on Monday night, then we were all off work on Tuesday and spontaneously decided to have a BBQ on our terrace. It turned out to be a fabulous night. Do you find that spontaneous nights are usually the best? With nine of us altogether and lots of food and wine. It was a perfect way to get to know each other a little better. Our neighbour even came to join us for some leftovers when he got home from work. The next day my family arrived and it's been a hectic week. I've cranked up some serious miles, burned holes through my shoes and filled up many memory cards! We packed so much into the few days they were here. I'll post about everything we did over the next few days, until then I hope you have a lovely Sunday!
