Dropped in on Ghent

A travel blog entry by emmaandrohan


We decided to have a short stop in Ghent. Ro hadn't been there and we had been told it was a lovely place to visit. Without a city map it was a little tricky to work out where to go. We ended up driving past a castle with turrets and the boys we keen to explore, so we parked nearby and walked back. It was a great castle called Gravensteen, built in the 11th Century.
