#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.

Oh relief, my flighty friend.

Oh relief, my flighty friend.

Very happy to announce that my friend, relief, has once again made herself present in my life. She came sweeping in today as I finished my last exam. I’m sure she’ll vanish again soon enough but I’m going to certainly enjoy our time together while she sticks around.

Be the first to like.

Instagram Video for Flanders in Seconds

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.

Flanders in 6

Posted on Jun 27, 2013 | 4 comments

Flanders in 6There has been a lot of talk about this in the media lately and I thought I would take a bit of time to share it here on OppositeOcean. The tourism website, Visit Flanders, is starting up a new project designed to bring anyone and everyone real videos of Flanders taken by real, ordinary people. The website for Flanders in 6 invites people to share their 6-second videos on the video sharing app, Vine. When sharing your video on Vine, you add the hashtag #flandersin6 and then your video will show up among all the others tagged with #flandersin6 so that anyone searching the website will be able to see your amateur video-making skills and the lovely moments you captured of Flanders.
