What Ghent is all about

Ghent is definitely worth a visit – it can be done in a day as I did, but it is the kind of place you need no rush to take in. Instead you can wander the streets, explore the public spaces, and search for decent fries, waffles etc. The important stuff y’know.

Falling for Mechelen

I dropped a sheepish apology as I checked into my hotel. “First time here?”, “Uh yes, and um, I hadn’t heard of Mechelen before…” I admitted.
“No problem”; she smoothed a map onto the counter and earnestly began circling the city’s attractions… Did you know this compact city had loads to see?

Too much beauty in Bruges for one day

One thing that struck me during my pre-trip research was that so many people only spend one day in Bruges. Blog posts entitled ‘A day trip to Bruges’ and ‘How to spend 24 hours in Bruges’ are everywhere and plentiful. I’m not sure why people don’t count Bruges worthy of a longer visit but I’m here to tell you it was worth every second of our three nights there.
