Ghent

‘Holland is cute. Girls like cute, right?’

Belgium, particularly Ghent, is cuter. Picturesque without being scrubbed clean like Bruges, Ghent is full of charming streets, scenic canals, and preserved medieval-looking neighborhoods and villages–and the best frites are outside the old meat market.

Meandering towards the city centre, I came across St. Pieter’s abbey, a refreshingly green and small space with apple trees and a tiny vineyard (though Belgian soil is not known for wine, though I guess they still keep trying).

Grey skies and Gothic churches.



Cobblestones for days–until you break your feet–in Patershol

The owners of Wasbar, a laundromat bar were tired of waiting for their laundry with little to do on the South side of the city. Live music Fridays. 

Fresh paint on their graffiti street.
