An Expat Talks about Moving to Brussels, Belgium

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Brussels

What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

Be open-minded, make an effort, don't assume everything (or anything or anyone) will be as you've known before. Things WILL be more difficult; but you will be a better - bigger? broader? more understanding? tolerant? appreciative? - person as a result. As for Brussels: It's a very easy community to move into and live in (even without knowing the languages), as most people are from elsewhere in the world. I've found Belgians that work in international companies are also very open. Friendships are made quickly and easily. I will truly miss my life here when I return.
