Avenue | Agnes Obel

My cousin played me Agnes Obel a few months ago, and I’d made a note to listen to more of her stuff. When I did, I realised I’d already got one of her songs after hearing it on an episode of One Tree Hill. Reading the youtube comments for this song, I saw that it had been used on Revenge (one of my new favourite shows) – I thought it sounded familiar.

A Danish singer, Obel has an amazing quality to her voice. Enjoy.

Au revoir, Bruxelles

Cracker of a day before I leave Brussels

Today I leave the place I’ve called home for the last year and trip across the Channel to start a new life in London. I realised this will be the fifth time in eight years I’ve done a move like this, after stints in Melbourne and France before here – crazy (am I?!).

I can’t wait to catch up with old friends who have settled in London, and to experience the Olympic atmosphere. But first I want to say my goodbyes to Brussels. So here’s the big and small of what I’ll miss and what I won’t about living in the heart of Europe. Continue reading
