A Day in Ghent

An early start to our day meant that we were desperate for food. After our first day of poor food choices (no regrets), we thought it would be best to get something on the more nutritious side. After some quick googling and instagram look ups for reference, we chose Gust. It was a great choice, let me tell ya- if you are in the city, you should definitely check it out.

After sharing a slice of banana bread too and relaxing for a little while, we made our way to the main part of the city.

Ghent boasts medieval architecture and clearly safety first since the city centre is a car free zone. 

Here is Saint Bavo's Cathedral, an 89m tall Gothic cathedral, most famous for the Ghent Altarpiece.

This is Saint Nicholas' church and it is one of the oldest and most well known landmarks of the city.  It was also home to the town bells until the Belfry Tower took ownership.

Oh hey, the Belfry of Ghent glowing in that cold afternoon sunlight. You pretty!

Graffiti street is pretty cool so you should check it out when in the city.

C and I had done our fair share of walking, including going up and down two sets of landmarks so we were obviously thinking of having food. We made a beeline to O'yo to get ourselves a late lunch.

The sun soon started to set so we tried to explore some more before we had to make our way back towards the train station to get us back to Bruges.

Until next time Ghent, you were a delight. 

Next city destination, Brussels.
