About

Please note THIS BLOG HAS MOVED to www.nicolebasaraba.com (as of January 2012).

Hello and welcome to Uni-Verse-City!

No, not the Ivy League universities you hear of, dream of, or for those lucky enough to attend. So why is my blog called Uni-Verse-City? This name leaves room for versatility to write about: travel, books, and living in Brussels.  So for all readers who are interested in these things, I will write one (uni) entry (verse) as often as I can no matter where in the world (city) I am. I write travel stories, reviews (books, food, fashion) and other lifestyle topics.

Blogging schedule: Travel (Mondays),  Writer’s Uni-Verse-City (Wednesdays), Culture/Lifestyle (Thursdays), Book Reviews (Fridays).

About the author:

Growing up in Western Canada, Nicole Basaraba was always skipping to her own beat. Not being a hockey fan, having no skills in skiing or snowboarding, always being cold, and having never tasted maple syrup, she is what you might call a “bad” Canadian. After studying some history in university and always dreaming of seeing Europe, Nicole moved to Brussels, Belgium to live, work and travel of course. She soon discovered that there is more to Belgium than just its delicious chocolate and she decided to stay in Europe for an undetermined period. Working in print publishing and website content management by day, she writes travel articles, book reviews and other lifestyle/culture articles about her fun and interesting experiences in Europe by night.

    I think my story of Ice Cap’s may have influenced this story?
