As you may already know, I went to university in Ghent, Belgium. I have spent a good 4 years of my life living there and I absolutely loved it. If I had the opportunity to go back, I wouldn’t think twice about it. It’s such a vibrant city with beautiful buildings, friendly people and good food. Throughout the years I’ve gotten to know so many amazing places in Ghent so it wasn’t easy narrowing it down to a more or less reasonable number but hey, here are 44 things to do in Ghent, that I would recommend (see what I did there?).
I’ve said it before but there’s just something about autumn that makes me feel so cozy, all warm and fuzzy inside. I love the changing colours, the falling leaves, wearing cosy sweaters… Although the weather wasn’t great (it was raining. Again. Damn you Belgian weather!), we went on a little autumn walk in nature reserve De Teut, which is located in Zonhoven, Belgium.
This place, oh this beautiful part of the world. Breathtaking. Picture perfect I’d call it. The Lechtal Valley in Austria is one of the most beautiful areas I have ever visited. We have been coming here since we were kids. My parents started coming here before I was born, when it was just the 2 of them. This place is special to me. So I was overjoyed when we finally got to go back this summer.
To conclude my Rotterdam blog post series I thought we’d have a little chat about Rotterdam in general and if it really is worth a visit. I know many of you immediately think of Amsterdam when someone mentions the Netherlands. But to tell you the truth, there are so many other beautiful parts of the country. And Rotterdam might be something for you too!
Rotterdam is the perfect place to discover new hotspots and cute little design stores. In my Rotterdam foodie guide I already talked about my favourite foodie hotspots, affordable places to eat. And I already briefly mentioned my favourite place in the whole of Rotterdam in that post too. But I just had to dedicate a whole post to Keet Rotterdam as I love this little place so much!
