Ghent, Belgium

Ghent, Belgium

My heart and thoughts go out to the Belgian people today, therefore, to show my solidarity, I have chosen to post a photo from this beautiful country in order to show Belgium in a positive light. Ghent, part of the Flemish part of the county, is often overlooked in favour of its more famous cousin, Brugges. Yet, both cities are incredibly beautiful and deserve a visit! In Ghent, you will find canals draped with weeping willows, Gothic and Neo-Gothic architecture, art nouveau designs, cheerful students sipping coffees in colourful cafes, food trucks and tiny restaurants selling fries and gaufres (waffles) in the streets, couples strolling down the cobbled streets. It is a hipster city, and those tourists who decide to visit this beautiful city relish in striking off the beaten path. Here, it is easy to mingle with the locals. Simply stroll along one of its many canals until you find a cozy cafe, cheerful restaurant or lively bar – and strike up a chat with the locals. You won’t regret it!
