    Great day at Ghent Festival

    July 21, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    I wish I was posting this at the end of our day but despite it being nearly 9.30pm we r due back into town at 10.30pm for our evening out with Hendrik and Steve straight after their performance- god help us!!
    Spent the day eating, drinking and walking around Ghent taking in all the free activities.
    Spent a lovely 30 mins listening to a cracking band, listened to some drummers, walked more than 10kms.... and then walked up 440 steps of the Cathedral tower to get a fabulous view of the city. Coming down was worse than going up!
    Sat by the river with a wine and then had dinner before coming home for a rest but have a feeling 1 hour is not going to be enough. This “holiday” is like an endurance event!!

    Party with Ghent's Talented and ? Famous

    July 22, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Had a very quiet day planning. Then after dinner we were taken swimming in the Leie River Ghent which also doubles as a toilet for the local cows!
    What was hilarious was after getting ourselves unceremoniously in we realised we couldn’t easily get out!!
    Several attempts and both flying backwards onto our asses (one of us into prickles and one of us into mud later!!) we got ourselves out onto the bank!!
    At 10.25pm we left for Sven’s bday party only to be stranded when a tram derailed.
    Steve cycled home and rescued us and walked us to the poshest party with the most talented group of people we could encounter. We had entertainment at professional level.
    Now on last tram home again...2.02!!
    This holiday is going to kill us ps the house where the party was has its own tunnel!!

    Gent (Ghent), Belgium

    June 27, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Today is our last riding day! We rode from Dendermonde to the old city centre of Ghent, about 43kms,  where we locked up our bikes and walked around the old town for about three hours.
    Ghent is a port city at the confluence of the Leie and Scheldt rivers. During the Middle Ages it was a prominent city-state. Today it’s a university town and cultural hub. Its pedestrianized centre is known for medieval architecture such as 12th-century Gravensteen castle and the Graslei, a row of guildhalls beside the Leie river harbour.
    Our three hours disappeared - there was so much to take in. We did, however, make time to enjoy a piece of warm apple pie and cream which is a specialty in Belgium - it was delicious!
    We then rode a further 7kms to the boat where we said goodbye to the bikes that had taken us on this journey - some 260kms over the past 6 days. I will miss the riding and camaraderie but perhaps not the aching backside!

    Fazit

    October 23, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Gent ist super ❤ Eine kleine Stadt, erinnert ein bißchen an Bonn .. Man bekommt alles - es ist aber nicht so überlaufen wie Amsterdam oder Köln. Überall flitzen Studenten herum👫 Es gibt unzählige kleine hippe Cafes und Restaurants, ein Paradies für Foodblogger und Veganer 😅 Es gibt sehr viele kleine Lädchen mit sehr süßem Schnickschnack, Waffeln, Schokolade und Pralinen. Viele viele Frituuren 🍟 Für 7.50 Euro kann man eine 45minütige Bootstour machen.. oder ein bißchen entlang verschiedener Sehenswürdigkeiten durch die Stadt schlendern .. Die alten Häuser und Kirchen sind sehr gut erhalten 🏚 100%ige Reiseempfehlung 🌍❤Read more

    Gent ❤

    October 23, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Leider haben wir kein passendes Hotel gefunden .. wollten uns Gent aber trotzdem anschauen und sind daher nach dem Kaffee früh los gefahren. 🛣🚙 Der Weg führte uns durch den Westerscheldetunnel! 6,6 km lang, unter dem Meer 😳 Merkwürdiges Gefühl 😴 In Gent haben wir direkt im Zentrum geparkt und sind lecker vegan frühstücken gegangen. Bananenbrot mit Erdnusscreme, Bananen und Kakaonibs 🥰 Kürbispfannekuchen mit Obst und Kokosschlagsahne 🥰 Dazu gab es einen Ingwershot und einen Hafermilch Cappuccino ☕ Das Cafe ist gleichzeitig auch ein Bio Supermarkt (fast alles unverpackt) .. 👏 Danach sind wir zur Touristeninformation und haben uns eine Karte geholt. Es gab diverse Spaziergangsempfehlungen .. 🚶‍♂️🚶‍♀️👣 Einigen sind wir gefolgt und haben dadurch viel gesehen ❤🏙
    Mittags gab es vegane Pizza 🍕 So lecker!!! Eine war belegt mit Tomatensauce, Seitan, Silberzwiebeln, eingelegten Gurken und geriebenem Kohl - klingt verrückt war aber mega lecker 🥰 Die andere mit Möhrencreme, Champions, Spinat und geriebenem Blumenkohl und oben drauf Grünkohl 🤷‍♀️ klingt auch verrückt war aber auch sehr lecker 👏 Danach sassen wir am Ufer. Haben die Touristen auf den Booten und die Studenten auf der Fahrrädern beobachtet 😅
    Zum Schluss ging es in die Bücherrei. In der 3. Etage sollte man einen schönen Ausblick haben.. Joa.. Vielleicht standen wir an der falschen Fensterscheibe 😅

    Gent

    June 12 in Belgium ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    Gegen und Seitenwind. Schwüle Luft. War nicht geil zu fahren. Aber die Anstrengung hat sich gelohnt. Gent belohnt mich mit einem epochalen Empfang. Diese Stadt ist ein weiterer WOW-Megapoint. Ich weiß gar nicht wo ich zuerst hinschauen soll. Diese Momente lassen die Anstrengungen schnell vergessen.Read more

    This was the city we spent three month in last year. We had a great time and had to return before kicking off our summer in Amsterdam.

    The crafts fair was happening this morning at the Vrigemarkt around the corner from our place on Baudelostraat. A market has been held here continually each Friday since the ninth century.

    Mo and Nasi had us over for a Persian dinner of lamb and rice last night. Tonight we'll go out to dinner with them.
