“In [the] beginning of 2012 I met [my boyfriend], who is Belgian. Most probably, if it was not because of him, I wouldn’t be in Brussels anymore, as I have this need to move. However, nowadays I feel super happy here because of him!”

 “Eventually, I turned up at [her] door […] with 5 tins of Heinz baked beans and we took it from there.”

“My wife has sometimes said that she feels that it is better that we settled in a third country, because then we are both in a similar situation: we are both migrants.

“I arrived in Brussels […] for a six month work contract. Met a lovely French lady in a bar and have been here ever since. Now married with two children.”

“I’d got 2 cats to keep me company and he wasn’t keen to share a house with me again if that included them! So it was a bit like that picture where the guy says: “You have to choose between me or the cat” and you see a big complacent cat in the foreground thinking: “We’ll miss you”!”
