Personally, I had an excellent time in Brussels! Brussels is a city full of life, culture and fun. Having the opportunity to live and work in Brussels, as a local, was without a doubt, the best summer of my life!
My program administrator was great! She provided answers to all of my questions, recommended cool places in Brussels, and was my mother-away-from-home.
We lived in an upscale area, 1 block away from the most popular square in town.
I ended up meeting a group of locals who became my good friends. We hung out every weekend and we still keep in contact.
