Little Ghent

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!

Hawaiimoon

Finally, the vacation we’ve been waiting for all year long! Our Hawaiimoon! We arrived really late/early this morning (around 2am) and pretty much just slept right away. The drive from the airport to the hotel was in pure darkness (there were no street lights), so we didn’t really know what was around us until we saw this view on our way to breakfast:

Graslei. Ghent, Belgium.

Adventures in Ghent

Graslei. Ghent, Belgium.

Finally, a day with decent weather in Belgium! Today’s adventure included wandering around Ghent, hopped on a boat tour to get a better view of the city from the water and dinner at Amadeus, a tradition we started the first time I visited Belgium.
