The city of Gent is one of the most charming, old world cities I have ever visited. I especially love the beautiful architecture, the skinny cobbled side streets and the smell of freshly made liege waffles.
My husband was fortunate enough to grow up in this lovely city and laughs every time I’m in awe finding castles in the middle of “downtown.” I grew up in Vancouver, where there is certainly no ancient buildings to be found. The most picturesque architecture can be found at the Graslei. It is one of my favourite streets in the city and you can see why. It’s like Disneyland here!
