When I was picking a city inside a brief train ride from Amsterdam exactly where I could balance exploring and relaxing for a week, a lot of recommendations have been produced. What sold me on Ghent is that it has the charm and picturesque canals of the popular Bruges, but it is a “real city” exactly where men and women reside and function and is the house of a substantial university student population. It is not just a tourist attraction.
Picturesque Canals of Ghent
The canals really feel like an important character in my story of Ghent. I was staying at an AirBnB that was on a small island in the middle of a canal. The canals became my navigation tools, as nicely as the result in of getting lost. They supplied an extraordinary (and wonderfully distracting) view for my morning runs. And so a lot of inspiring photography possibilities.
