Hey there! I'm Rachida, your friendly and enthusiastic local host in Brussels. As a born and bred Brussels native, the city never ceases to surprise me. As a mom, I have a soft spot for family-friendly places to create beautiful memories with my 5-year-old son. Exploring new venues, experiencing captivating exhibitions, taking leisurely walks in the breathtaking Sonian Forest, and indulging in delicious meals at hidden gems—I'm constantly seeking these fantastic experiences. From the charming neighborhoods of Ixelles, Saint-Gilles, and Saint-Josse to the bustling city center, Etterbeek, and Forest, I'm well-versed in the hidden gems and local favorites that make this city so unique. Prepare for unforgettable moments, unique experiences, and the warmest of welcomes.
