Hi, I have been offered a short term contract to work in Brussels on a one year project but I wondered how easy it easy to live outside the city and commute daily. Having lived in Berlin for the past 4 years it would be nice to be somewhere a bit more rural and I wondered if it's possible in Belgium Thanks
We are planing to visit to Brussels for a city break and are looking for a hotel during our stay. If possible we'd like a family room (2 adults and 2 children) or 2 rooms, somewhere within walking distance of the Grand Place and other amenities. I don't want to end up in a dingy B&B though (but can't afford 5* prices!) - can anyone recommend anywhere suitable please?
Am I doing something wrong with my digital radio - it retunes itself constantly and the sound quality is not that good? It's a small Sony so I expected it to be ok. I was going to treat myself to a Roberts retro radio, but I am not convinced about the digital radio sound. Has anyone else had any problems with them?
Hi, we are relocating to Brussels this summer and are just starting to look at houses, etc. We have a 2 yr old and a big dog, so would love somewhere close to parks, forests, etc... However, we don´t know the areas at all, so any hints or recommendations would really be appreciated! We will have to commute daily to thye European Quarter, so good connections are essential. Thanks ever so much!
Hello All, I've been in Belgium a few years now and have never bothered to get mutual cover. I'm quite young, fit and always couldn't find the motivation to go through a load of Belgian bureaucracy as I didnt know how long i'd be here. Anyways, it's come to the point where I think i'll finally do it, however before I get down to it. Has anyone been in this position and can verify. Will they try to charge me back the years I have been working here (Never used any health care at all) ? I would be grateful for advice. Thanks
