Readers' Experience

I believe the internation diversity of expats that have nothing in common created this atmosphere that is quite difficult to find anywhere else...

 

"Brussels is a unique city in Europe, when I get the usual question 'what do you like about Brussels' I find the answer to be anything but the city itself!! I don't think I am one of those that would recommend a lot of sightseeing location in Brussels - not that there aren't any - it's rather the lifestyle that is so unique. I believe the internation diversity of expats that have nothing in common created this atmosphere that is quiet difficult to find anywhere else.

A very large group of expats from all over the world and specifically Europeans also made English an unofficial first language in Brussels. So made a group of people with different backgrounds / races / religions able to communicate and build a unique bond. it's sometimes difficult to describe a group that is really closer to family than it is to friends, people that are there for you when you need them they listen with the attention of a sibling and the enthusiasm of a close friend.

You get to learn a lot more about different cultures and get all the benefits of having a good friend.

I know what it sounds like a normal thing if you read this, but as I said before it's really difficult to describe.

I think the reason why I'm sharing this here is to let everyone who's living / interested to live here know that living in this city can be a milestone in your life only if you kept an open mind and tried to show interest and listen to something different and remember that 'different' is just another 'similar' just not to you!

My advice?

Two things ,

be yourself

don't judge people

You'll be just fine."
