My name is Irina. I am a Bulgarian fiction writer, journalist and consultant, currently living in Brussels. And I love it. I have traveled Europe but there is no other city which makes me feel the way Brussels does.
I am starting this blog in the beginning of my third stay here. The first one dates back to 2003. From what I had heard about Brussels I imagined it rather administrative and boring. “Well, at least there are some exciting cities, such as London, Paris and Amsterdam, nearby”, I was thinking. But I arrived here and that was it. I was happy to travel around but even happier to always come back to Brussels. The myth of the gray and dull European capital however is still hovering through Europe. Hence this blog.
I hope it will help you to see and experience Brussels differently.
