Breaking Lent in Ghent

... old brick buildings with pointy roofs. It was a warm day but people seem to love wearing their brown/forest green coats and pants. Wandering the streets we notice a funky smell coming from the storm water grates. I ask the hostel owner later who was adamant the streets don't normally smell like sewage - only when it might rain. He points out that Belgium is less smelly than Rotorua. However comparing hydrogen sulphide ...

... we put in a stop to have some hot soup in a little place called Couvin as it was still only 11 degrees. Back behind the wheel we drove through Charleroi and on towards Bruxelles. The autobahn from Bruxelles to Ghent was very busy with a lot of trucks and I was glad to get there after a 5 hour drive. Ghent has a very pretty mediaeval old town, the Gravensteen Castle built in 1180 is part of the town centre as is the river Lys. Across the road from the castle ...

Overall it was an amazing trip in Belgium and I would love to go back soon!

I went back to the hostel and checked out the beer festival which had started today. They fenced off the middle part of the Grand Place with all the beer tents inside. It was packed with people and didn't look all that fun. I couldn't figure out how to get inside anyway, so I ...

Imagine a 10 day festival held in the centre of town. All the roads are closed and there are at least 6 stages set up. Different bands and DJs play every day and into the night and there are street performers, food, drinks, no curfew AND it's free.

It’s called Gentse Feesten, and it happens every year. Until Jo and I met Laura and Jan, a Belgian couple, on a trek in Nicaragua I had never heard ...
