Born and raised in Asti, Northern Italy, a town of roughly 80000 dead-inside people, SE of Turin. Nothing but hills and humidity surrounds us, and that's why we basically live out of wine and a bit of tourism. We fight with Milan for the title of Most Foggy City in Italy - and, if you've been to Milan, you know how bad this is.
Small town in Belgium, a bit NO of Brussels. Not much to see, not much to do except for nice walks through the forests. I always seem to think that European towns/cities are much more boring than in the USA - or atleast some parts of the usa. Trying to think of something spectacular or interesting fact about my region but... there is none!
At least your town has the excuse of being small. Mine is quite big compared to major cities, but there is still nothing to do, no working opportunities, no sharing, no feeling for each other. That's why I'll move to Turin as soon as I can. I suggest you do the same with Brussels; I loved it when I was there.
