My name is Toby Van Assche and I would like to welcome you to my personal blog site. I am a tri-lingual communications expert with almost five years experience working for the public sector. I have recently joined the PR and PA consultancy Grayling, based in the center of Brussels. On this blog, I will post reviews, ideas, and stories that are of interest to me, and hopefully to a larger audience too.
One topic on which I hope to share my experiences with you is running. I have already competed three marathons in the past, and have already reached my bucket list goal of running the 42.2 Kilometer race in under four hours.
Other things I would like to write about my experiences traveling and visiting restaurants and museum. I am especially interested in contemporary history, architecture, and art (late 19th century and early 20th century), as well as current music and pop-culture.
Finally, I am interested in writing about things to do with a five-year-old girl, in Belgium and while traveling abroad. How to burn time, where to take her, etc.
One area I will try to avoid like the plague is politics, this despite the fact that I have dedicated a large part of my life studying, teaching about, and working in politics. I plan this blog to be lighthearted.
Please feel free to comment or leave feedback on any of my posts.
