While staying in Portus Ganda we were invited to a street party where we got the chance to mingle with the locals, sharing food, drink, music (albeit country and western - go figure) and stories - a truly special night.
Our arrival in Gent was heralded by the Food Truck Festival - what a way to be introduced to Gent and the potential foodie scene.
I am so pleased to say that we will be spending winter here as there is so much to do and see. We have left most of the museums until then but we did go into a few churches and captured some of the amazing street art. There is a special tour in Gent called the Concrete Canvas Tour which highlights many of the local street artists.
