New Life, New City [Update + Apartment Tour]

After two months of silence on the blog… I am finally making a come back! With a lot of new things to say and a lot of new things to show! First of all, my new blog design. I really hope you like this new theme and layout. After a few months on, I got a bit frustrated and this made me decide to go to and explore a full word of new possibilities and it’s really exciting. The biggest thing is (and you have probably noticed) I am now able to write both in English AND French, which is pretty great! I am not done translating everything yet but you can go and see the French version (button on top of the page).

For those of you who haven’t heard: I moved to Brussels in January! I have been working here for one month, I got a VIE contract as Digital Content Officer here in the Belgian capital. I couldn’t be more happy about it. I’m still trying to adjust to my new routine. Still, it’s going pretty well so far, especially because we found a really nice apartment so close to the office. It is such a nice change to have a balanced life and be able to have activities when I come back from work, and not waste my life in public transportation.

What’s up for us appart from this? We are going to Amsterdam next week! I’m really excited about it. Living abroad is cool but traveling around is the best part I have to say. Next week I am going to my VIE starting meeting in Paris, and spending a quick day there. I love being a tourist in my own city (which I am, I will hopefully post a lot of articles about Brussels and Belgium), but also in general, so here I go!

Again, about the apartment, I think we got really lucky here. We found an amazing duplex between Montgomery and the European institutions. Here I think pictures will speak more than words, so I will just show you below: apartment tour yay!

I’ll talk to you very soon, very happy to be back though!

    Lovely color scheme and I love how sleek and modern everything looks (especially the kitchen). Soon the weather will change and you will get you use that nice little porch. Lucky you! 🙂
