One thing many racers overlook when planning their stay in Belgium is that the country may operate slightly different from what you are used to at home. This section talks briefly about the languages, currency, areas to live, food shopping, travel, transportation, communication, visiting the doctor, and the hospital system.
This is one category that we feel we have only just scratched the surface, and hope to expand in the near future.
So I will leave you with a few words of wisdom. Belgium is a very bureaucratic country, and they love their red tape! If you need to deal with ANY paperwork or official here be prepared for it to be a long drawn out process (and at times the process and channels may not even make much logical sense). It’s just easier to deal with it their way, don’t try to fight the system… just shake your head and laugh!
