WINTER TALE IN GHENT
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already saw that a couple of weeks ago I spent a few days in beautiful Ghent. One of the reasons why I love Belgium is that it’s really easy to travel both within the country and in neighbouring ones, like France, Germany and the Netherlands. Ghent forms part of Flanders, the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium and is less than an hour’s drive from Brussels. Admittedly, it’s less popular than Bruges but also less crowded and just as beautiful.
I snapped these pictures during a walk around the historic centre on a particularly cold Sunday before enjoying a delicious brunch at De Superette, a must-try foodie spot when you visit Ghent. Much of the city’s architecture has remained intact, so the scenery is really lovely even on a grey day. I couldn’t help but feel that I was wandering around a living museum with beautiful canals and some interesting modern street art. My friend and I strolled around the car-free center photographing all the beauty surrounding us until our fingers froze. I’ll definitely be back to Ghent as I have a ton of spots I would like to try but until then, these pictures will remind me of how lucky I am to live so close to one of Belgium’s gems.
