#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.

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.

A sea, you say?

A sea, you say?

As surprising as it may be for such a tiny country, believe it or not, Belgium actually has a coastline. Only about 70 km of coastline on the North Sea, but it is beautiful and enjoyed to the fullest at every pleasant-weathered opportunity. I know that not a lot of people have a wealth of knowledge about Belgium. That isn’t a problem for me; it actually makes it more fun to write about Belgium because it is still an undiscovered and mysterious place for many. Let’s start with geography for this post; take a look at the Google map of Belgium below and familiarize yourself a bit with the geography and the tiny but noteworthy coastline. Normally when I try to explain anything about Belgium, the first necessary bit of information is to remind people where it is.
