Hello,

My girlfriend and I are planning on spending 2025 in Europe. We are going on a trip in May to narrow down our choices and visit family. I'm definitely intimidated and experiencing a bit of analysis paralysis but we both are very excited to dive into a different culture for a time. Belgium was the first of the countries we're considering but we have a long way to go before narrowing that down! Any advice is appreciated.

Hi!

I'm Dutch living in Belgium with a German partner living in the Netherlands who will move here in the near future. I'm mostly interested in how things work when it comes to moving from NL to BE as an expat from DE.

My name is Lou. I have recently retired and I am looking for my next adventure.

I am looking through an agency called Granny Au Pair that connects Au Pairs over 55 with families needing extra help.

I have a lift in Bruges 20 years I’m interested in meeting people from all over the world and hope that this site will help me without him. I really have lots of friends from Belgium and the UK.

Hello,

Since 2006 I have lived and worked in different countries. I have lived in Spain, Austria and now in Belgium, in Bruges.

As a Dutch lady I have no problem speaking the language here.

Best Regards,
Cornelia

Hi!

For many years I have wanted to live in Europe and a combination of opportunities for my business along with the fact that I have a good number of friends (no Americans though) living in Brussels has made me finally decide to make the jump. I founded a music company named PopDaze, which is a social media and promotions company focused on the music and pop culture of the 60's through the 90's. In addition, I am a co-founder of a production company that creates content in multiple genres along with providing corporate development and external production services to music, entertainment, and digital companies. I am very much looking forward to expanding into Europe. My first career was as a corporate attorney and partner in a small private equity firm.

I am listing my house for sale in early August, and hopefully will be able to move out to Brussels by late '22 or early '23. One of my best friends will be joining me in the move. Thank you for allowing me to join.

I am retired and have always wanted to do some extensive traveling around Europe. Belgium is centrally located and has enough modern conviencies and old world charm to be my home country living abroad.

I'm not sure why I'm doing this, after scrolling through the first few pages of the Forum and not seeing where anyone contributes
Anyway, my name is Richard. I am a 75 year-old retiree currently living in Arizona. I will be travelling to Belgium very soon to meet a woman that I have been corresponding with via internet. I will also be looking at the possibility of living in Belgium. I am not glued to the U.S. and have been looking at other options for quite some time. It would be nice to meet some ex-pats while there if that is possible?
