No. The best thing about living here is the ease of travel. However, there seems to be a lot of aggression towards us from other drivers (our plates make us stand out). They will cut you off left and right when driving as if to prove a point. Very frustrating. Never seen such aggression and we were posted in the Middle East. - Feb 2019

Absolutely! - Jan 2014

No. I would not go again because I now know how much the weather effects me. If you are someone from a rainy place (Portland, Seattle, etc.) then Brussels will be like that...on steroids! - Oct 2012

No. It is a very comfortable and affordable place to be, but a little dull if you are single and in your 20s. The lack of customer service can be frustrating also. - May 2012

Yes. Some people complain about Brussels, but it's an easy place to live. - Jan 2012
