If you’re bored of Belgium you’re bored of life.
Few countries pack so much culture, history, fine food, world-class cities and endearing weirdness into such a small place.

I saw that earlier today

From the first list, there is no disagreement here, particularly #1, #2, #7, #15 and #26, with a very special mention for the second part of #12

From the second list, there's nothing wrong with either #3 or #4

As to the first part of #12 in the first list, I saw this just last week ...

"The Highways and Traffic Agency had implemented an internal guideline from 2003. As it had never been implemented before, it has only now come to light. The guideline does not conform with the language legislation. The language legislation of course takes precedence."
Law takes precedence over an internal directive

Maybe now, after 7 years not going back, I should consider the trip.
Just 1 annoying detail : Dog too ill to come with me and would not accept any other carer.

Let me underscore the health system. Today I go to hospital for my 2nd operation.

My friend in the UK has a similar problem over a similar timescale (non -critical) and hasn't even had an exploratory scan yet after a year. Let alone the chance of an operation. I had 2 MRI scans in a week of being prescribed them, and my final op today. The ops have to be at least 6 months apart and all done and dusted in well under a year.

I still love my home country, UK, but have no regrets about making Belgium my new base since the 90's. I get to London in 2 hours by Train, as I did last week and is great too.

Also the food ... I think one of the best quality/price system in Europe

Thanks Annetje for the great article . Good to 'chat' with you again

Groetjes

Jon
