Still I will give it my best shot. As always the journey from Leuven was straight forward. This is definitely one of the good aspects of Belgium; travel time is never more than a couple of hours. The reason for my heading off to Ghent was the Ghent festival.
I am not very sure if I am in a position to comment too much about the city of Ghent, since I spent all my time at the festival.
And here's the cliche again: there are beautiful churches too. And remember to check out Vlasmar(k)t street; not very sure if this really is the name of the street and if it is usually as crowded and bustling as it was during the festival. Sorry for being so vague but I was there last month.
Well one point I would like to make, and I hope that I am able to emphasize on it enough; is that you should visit Ghent during the Ghent festival period. Yes the city in itself is beautiful and surely you will like it, but you have absolutely no idea how much fun you will be missing out on, in case you don't follow my advice.
Check the next blog for something on Belgian beaches ... yes there is one that I know of in Belgium :)
