The position provides a stipend of €1200/month and I'm not sure how much that will get me. [more inside]

24 hours of free time in Brussels: Stay or Go?

Looking for a quiet place between Paris and Brussels

I am in the early planning stages of a trip to Paris and Brussels. I'd like to find a place between the two (or at least not too far out of the way) to spend two nights or so in the middle of the trip. I'd prefer a small, walkable town on the coast or with some kind of natural feature that you can just sit and stare at. Calais? Lille? Bologne-Sur-Mer?
