gent, belgium

gent, ghent, gand ~ what a beautiful flemish city, my dears. i have visited many famous, big, historic, unesco heritage listed, exotic and other cities this year ~ heidelberg, NY, jerusalem, aqaba, petra, lucerne, schaffhausen, hanoi, dinkelsbuehl, dillingen, weissenburg, ... but gent was the biggest positive surprise for me and probably the nicest of all :-). why? i do not even know .... maybe because the street we lived in (vlaanderenstraat #54) looked like the main street in my native city of kosice, slovakia? or maybe because we didn't expect anything special, didn't inform ourselves before the arrival and just visited it because our belgian friend told us we should better visit gent than bruegge? anything completely different? who knows? anyway, the number and the beauty of so special old buildings and the friendly flair there was just overwhelming :-)

more pictures here.

anything else? coming soon or never
