Day to Ghent
Kelly and I made the effort to spend an extra one of our Belgium days heading to the larger town of Ghent, although not quite the industrial mecca that is Brussels this town was significantly bigger than Brugge, but much closer at only 25mins away.
Although it was a fair bit busier and hence more crowded it did come with more sights and a larger area to explore. It had a lovely river, large cathedral and a city castle to explore and had plenty to keep us occupied for the day.
We enjoyed food on the river bank while snacking all day on our adventures through the town. The town again was very walkable and was easily accessed by trams as well, if need be. It was truly remarkable how these towns stay in the condition they do, it made for an amazing day away from home.
