My name is Joaquim, I am a Portuguese pharmacist and just arrived in Brussels to work in UCB's Headquarters. UCB is a Belgium Pharma company.
I live at the moment in the centre, but I am in the process of knowing the city and to choose where I want to live permanently. My priorities are a neighbourhood family friendly, near international schools (English or bilingual), easy access to public transports and affordable rents. The commuting time to Anderlecht should be less than 1h by public transports. Any suggestion will be appreciated!
Meanwhile I would like to have some practical tips on everyday life like where to go shopping (groceries, soda, cleaning products, etc), big shopping malls (cinema, eating, clothes, sports materials, etc), where to hang out in the free time, etc.
