#VisitGent

Visit Gent, The Ghent tourism office, has launched a fun new tourism campaign. It’s no secret that I feel really lucky to live in such a beautiful city and like to take every opportunity to encourage people to visit it. Therefore, I thought I’d take this opportunity to share some of the funny videos from the new campaign and inform my readers of the opportunity to win a weekend stay in Ghent to experience it all for themselves.

Musical Trivia

Posted on Jul 31, 2013 | 7 comments

What do Belgians know about Americans? Well… if you watch Belgian TV you might think it’s only The Simpsons (another post about the Belgian addiction to The Simpsons here), Swamp People, and country music. Needless to say I’m doing my best to change the stereotype. Anyway, I saw this artist performing this song on Belgian TV the other day and just had to laugh. I immediately recognized the music to this song and it took me straight back to my childhood when my sister and I used to play our tapes in our boombox and dance and sing on the picnic table. Can you tell which country song this is?

An Introduction to Belgian Beer

It’s been a long time now that I’ve been wanting to write a post about Belgian beer. After all, this blog is mostly about Belgian culture and my experiences with it and beer is very much an essential part of Belgian culture. Although I really love Belgian beer and will rarely ever turn down the opportunity to taste a new one, I’m still no expert. That’s why I am very excited today to bring you the following guest post from the Belgian beer enthusiasts at Beer Tourism. I do hope you enjoy the informative introduction to Belgian beers that they have so expertly prepared for my readers and of course, I hope they inspire you to embark on your own Belgian beer adventure. It will be delicious, I can guarantee that!

Posted on Jul 19, 2013 | 2 comments

Ghent is in the process of gearing up for the Genste Feesten which will start tomorrow. The Gentse Feesten is a 10 day cultural festival held in the city of Ghent. The festival has been taking place every year since 1843 and offers the public many free concerts and other forms of entertainment. Today while out meeting with a friend for a cold drink in the city center, we had a nice view of the festival preparations. The Graslei is starting to transform and by this time tomorrow it will be full of people listening to music, drinking, and enjoying the evening sun.

6 seconds of Saturday in Ghent

Posted on Jul 10, 2013 | 0 comments

On Saturday we into the city during the afternoon. We needed something from one of the shops in the city center and the afternoon was sunny so we decided to go on our bikes. After we had done our shopping, we couldn’t resist walking around the city a bit since the weather was just so nice. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try out Vine for the first time so I made this little Vine video for Flanders in 6. I introduced Flanders in 6 in a previous post (you can read that here) but hadn’t had the time to try it out myself then. Hope you enjoy these 6 seconds of our Saturday afternoon.
