Guest post by Michelle Damiani - Three days Brussels

My guest blogger today is Michelle Pina Damiani.  I am not only happy to have discovered her blog but also, or even more so to have received her permission to share this absolutely fabulous article about Brussels with you! 
It starts like this: "Three days in Brussels is simply not enough. I feel like we barely scratched the surface. We saw enough to enamor, enchant, and enliven, but it was a wrench to leave. The food, the architecture, the pace of the city…we loved it all"    
and it ends like this: "And we haven’t lost sight of wanting to go back. We planned this trip with the intention that for each person’s birthday we’d  take a trip designed for them. Now we’re thinking that for each person’s birthday we’ll go to Brussels".
I know you want to read everything in between: http://www.ilbelcentro.com/2012/10/08/three-days-in-brussels/
Michelle is a freelance writer and food lover currently living in Spello, Italy for a year. A practicing clinical psychologist based in Charlottesville, Virginia, Damiani's short fiction recently was awarded first place by author John Grisham. 
She has been blogging daily since she arrived in Italy on July 27 about her experiences there with her family of five. The blog will be a chronicle to treasure of the special year in the life of her family. 
Michelle lived in Belgium when she was small and visited again for a couple of reasons, see more here:

  9. leuk hé die muurschilderingen in Brussel!
    By the way: wij waren vorig jaar in Syrië, in februari 2011, nog net Syrië kunnen bezoeken voor de oorlog uitbrak! een land dat echt het bezoeken waard is, en de mensen waren supervriendelijk en niet opdringerig! groetjes, Hilde
