A Photo Essay: Ghent, Belgium

Ghent: a completely unexpected gem in the middle of Belgium. Originally, we were planning on only stopping in Bruges and Brussels, to get a quick taste of Belgium, but the more I read about Ghent, the more intrigued I became, and I knew we just had to check it out. I fell in love with Ghent, and I will tell you more about why soon, but for now, here is a tour through photos:

    It looks nice! Love the big fries in a cone. Ha! How did you find Brussels? We went in ’09 and I didn’t really fall in love with it. We need to explore more of Belgium though…

      We really didn’t like Brussels that much–I actually have a post coming up about that soon! We liked Ghent and Bruges quite a bit though, so it would be fun to see more of the smaller towns in Belgium!

    We really enjoyed Ghent too! Beautiful buildings and we loved that there were hardly any tourists.

      We loved that part too! Always nice to visit a place with more locals than tourists. We really enjoyed the pretty buildings too–especially at night! Glad you had a good time there!

    Ghent looks like a cool place. Definitely reminded me of Amsterdam of several of the shots, but then they’re not exactly worlds apart distance wise I guess ha! Great shots guys.

      Thanks! We loved Ghent. I suppose it does make sense that it’s similar to Amsterdam when I think about it! We still need to make it there–looks like a great place too!
