Healthy Breakfast Muffins

Like many European Cities (not London, but Paris for instance), many places in Brussels shut during the summer whether for one week or one month. Last Friday, my colleagues and I found ourselves with nowhere to go at lunch. All our regular haunts were shut. In a moment of unity, we all headed to the local…

One Saturday in Brussels

Last weekend, two of my best friends, Liv & Kate visited Brussels. They came to spend some time with me, visit my new home and explore the city. This meant, three best friends – overly excited and full of endorphins – running around. Poor James. What a man, what a man, what a mighty-mighty man….

That Sunday Feeling

How was your Sunday? Did you start it feeling a bit jaded? Or did you wake up fresh as a daisy? Yeh, I woke up a little groggy yesterday morning too after going on a bit of a bar crawl after dinner with friends on Saturday night. The expedition’s purpose was to locate a good local place…
