Advice about living in Brussels
My partner and I(plus 8month baby) will be moving to Brussels early next January and are therefore avidly researching the place and have been mining this site :)
We have two concerns which I hope some of you can offer your opinion on, unfortunately they are on negative aspects I'm afraid, but please don't take it the wrong way. These two questions are just sitting in our minds..
1) Are burglaries really a strong concern in Brussels- or is it a case of some people have a big experience with it , and others have none? What about saftey in travelling around the town centre also. (Sorry we are not sure where we will be staying as yet..Ixelles?).
2) Are there any scams or things we should particularly be wary of as newcomers? Whether just day to day things, or service concerns? We have both lived in Europe before and know its easy to be initially oblivious to this side so just thought to ask..
Obviously- thanks for your time and input if any!
