We both work in the public-affairs sector, as many people do in Brussels. We have studied literature and cinema.
Being French, we put a very high importance on food, and we will be very happy to give you tips on restaurants. We also like to go out, so we'll be able to give you tips on bars also. We're developing quite a decent knowledge on Belgian beers.
We regularly go to exhibitions and love the antique shops, so we'll give you tips on this too.
We are very open-minded about travel destinations, so feel free to come up with any proposals. We love to travel, and do so as often as we can.
