Medieval Gem of Belgium: The City of Ghent


Our second full day in Ghent is when the sun finally came out, the sky was a crisp vibrant blue, clouds were scarce and the effect on the buildings and overall view was radical! The silhouette of the intricate medieval architecture against the sky was incredibly vivid, making for a view so awesome that everything looked somewhat unreal. Am I being too dramatic? Well it's true, or at least that's how my senses perceived it. I certainly can't be the only person to visit Ghent and feel stunned by its medieval beauty! It was a big improvement compared to the dreariness of when we first arrived two days prior.
