Last weekend I went to Ghent with my friends Luiza, Christopher, and Jordana. Ghent is a town in Flanders, the Flemish-speaking part of Belgium, about half an hour northeast of Brussels by train. It's a small city with a lot of character. You can walk everywhere, and we did so, strolling along canals and eating delicious pastries.
This is the train station.
Luiza, Christopher, and Jordana, checking the map.
There was construction everywhere, so we missed a lot of the beautiful scenery...
This is inside one of Ghent's famous cathedrals. One of Jan Van Eyck's most famous works is housed here.
I lit a candle.
One of those canals I mentioned earlier.
After lunch, we stopped at this little bakery called Julie's. I ate the most delicious white chocolate-Speculoos tart... I'm daydreaming about it right now.
One of the squares in Ghent not obscured by construction. There was a little flea market taking place as we walked around. We walked all over the city - there are a lot of antique stores that are easy to get lost in. It was a pleasant day.
