The best part about travelling Europe is the opportunity to do mini-holidays. Everything is so close by! Well, relatively. But let’s have this discussion again once you’ve taken a 24-hour-sleeper train from Jaisalmer to Varanasi.
A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to visit a travel friend in Amsterdam, and as I was snooping around the map, I relised Belgium isn’t too far away. And one of my firends just happened to be doing a student exchange in Ghent! So, I hopped on a Flixbus and dashed over the border to the land of thrice-fried fries, sugar-topped waffles and luxury chocolate. And BEER. Let’s not forget the beer. (Because my hangover head sure won’t.)
I managed to spend one day in Ghent and another one in Bruges. Since most of my activities were focused around eating waffles and trying not to get my feet wet, I would’ve felt like a cheat writing a guide, so instead you get a photodiary. Fun! And there’s a video at the end of the post. Double fun!
