I was a bit sceptic when I re-moved to Brussels. I lived here four years ago, for two months and to be honest, I wasn't a big fan. It was grey, rainy and not very exciting. To be fair, though, I wasn't in town for a single weekend, escaping to Berlin, Paris or Maastricht whenever I could.
This has now changed. I'm "stuck" here for a bit longer and I don't mind this at all. I have started looking for cafés, restaurants, bars and other nice places and I was quite surprised what Brussels has to offer.
