On a sunny afternoon in early October last year, which happened to be the day of my birth, I sat in one of the most enchanted rooms I’ve ever been in. It is a café located on the 5th floor of an Art Nouveau building in Brussels, which used to be a department store and was then turned into a Musical Instrument Museum.

I liked the plainness of the furnishings. This place was so gorgeous in itself, any plush would have been over the top.
Sitting on the terrace, sipping my coffee and enjoying the extraordinary view, I experienced one of those rare moments when you are aware of being happy.
And this is the view:
