    Dont get to a magician show too late

    July 20 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Arrived in Ghent off the Flibco bus and dropped our bags at Hendrik’s show venue. Then got caught in a thunderstorm so threw ourselves into the nearest cafe. Had 2 coffees before we felt slightly human again and then set off to see a bit of Ghent which is packed with people for its annual 10 day festival. Full of music, shows, street performances etc.
    Ghent is a beautiful city and a bit of a surprise.
    Had dinner at Steve’s and then they announced at 10pm we were not off to bed we were off to a magician show!!!
    We got here with 2 mins to spare and the only seats were in the front row!! A very intimate, slightly weird but amazing card trick show with slightly too much front row audience participation later we left into a heaving night scene of festival Ghent.
    A gin and a long walk home along the canal we finally got to bed at 1am!!! So knackered. This European living/ going out at night is going to take getting used to!!

    Kate's first silent disco

    July 22 in Belgium ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    We made it back into town for the 11pm fireworks to celebrate Belgium’s National Day before enjoying more of the festival’s music.
    On the way to the last tram we stumbled across a silent disco by the Cathedral. Kate has her first taste of dancing to ur own tunes... luckily for us there was only 1 to listen to! Another great night thanks to Hendrik and Steve. Finally got to bed at 2.30 am!Read more

    Ghent. Belgium Gem

    July 6, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    We pulled up to a small barge behind a dirty pub and I doubted any wow factor for this travel break between Paris and Amsterdam.

    I was wrong.

    What we saw was spectacular. 7th century monasteries, courthouses covering crime down to Paris, canals that were their main roads and toilets overhanging canals as they were also “washrooms”. Bridges where beheadings were convenient the disposal of blood and heads and that took heads off if one traveled too fast underneath.

    Paris was rebuilt two centuries ago. This architecture and culture existed thirteen centuries ago. Historic overload.

    Oh. And Belgium is proud of their beer and chocolate. The beer is thick and wine like not thin and hopsy like Aussie stuff and the chocolate......oh!!! (Says coco in coco heaven)
