Photos from Ghent, Belgium

The answer to my quiz from earlier this week was Ghent, in Belgium! It was my first time in Belgium, although I was in Leiden, the Netherlands earlier this year and they are close in proximity.

Ghent was way calmer than Dublin, so it was a nice break from the stress, even though I was at a conference and they keep us working from dawn til dusk. Here are some photos.

The guide told us Charles the fifth used to torture people in this castle and their screams used to echo around the neighbourhood, so the city almost tore it down, but decided to renovate it instead for tourism. Makes the castle look pretty ominous

I kinda love this old wall that nature has reclaimed. Plenty of kayakers on the water
