Wendy DeyellDiscovering Brussels: What's Hiding Behind the Walls?

By Wendy Deyell

There is a fascinating hidden side of Brussels concealing many enchanting gems that can only be discovered by being curious; by looking past the facade and the quirkiness of the city. Exploring these finds, and sharing engaging stories about the history, culture, and people that illustrate these discoveries, is Wendy's passion.

Brussels generates strong emotions in those of us that come from somewhere else. Do we enjoy life in the capital of Europe or do we simply put up with it until we can leave? We can't help but make comparisons to our 'home' country but do these perceptions help or hinder us?

In a virtual tour following the route of the 13th century wall around Brussels, we'll explore some hidden places and look at why we build walls and why we tear them down, both literally and figuratively. What are we protecting, hiding (from), or fearing? When do walls represent growth and openness and when are they symbols of being closed to the rest of the world?

Taking an imaginary wander around the centre of the city, Wendy will ask you to open your eyes, your heart, and your mind to experience Brussels, and your attitude to it, in a new way.

About Wendy

A Francophile since childhood, Wendy has followed a love for all things French from Toronto to Brussels via Quebec and France for education, work and pleasure. A communications and PR professional by training, an expat and dual citizen by virtue of chasing job opportunities, and a cultural explorer by passion, she is now sharing her love for discovering the hidden side of Brussels and Belgium in a venture called Wondrous Wanders.
