#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.

The curious case of the disappearing September.

A favorite from the September photos.

September of 2013 is in the running to be the swiftest September of my 27 years. It has passed me by at an unbelievably fast speed. I barely noticed it had arrived since my head was buried in text books…

The middle went by just as quickly due to the long-awaited arrival of two American guests. In an effort to pack as much punch into their short visit, we saw and did as many things as possible. A side effect of this kind of behavior is that time tends to fly on by without anyone realizing. We drove from Amsterdam to Épernay and everywhere in between, trudging on despite the characteristic Belgian rain

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.

Getaway in France

Posted on Jul 7, 2013 | 4 comments

We just returned from a week in Menton in the south of France. It was a beautiful place to relax and get away from all the responsibility in Belgium. We spent hours exploring the old city, soaking up the sun on the beach, and swimming in the Mediterranean Sea. I tried to capture it all with the camera and I’ve compiled some of my favorites to share here.

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.
