Una Fermata a Ghent

A Stop in Ghent – Brussels

Ghent Cathedral

Ghent was a pit stop on our way between Brussels and Brugges. Ahh the beauty of a road trip – you get to see so much!

Riverside restaurants

Restaurant where we had lunch

Our first stop was for lunch. We had a light lunch with bread, cheese, meats … and a round of beers.

Gorgeous buildings everywhere!

Our view at lunchtime

Westmalle Dubbel, Kriek Boon and a monk beer …

Castle in Ghent

After lunch we wandered around to check out the city a little more … it was a pretty adorable town.

Typical Square

A view across the river

The riverside was one of the most picturesque areas. It was wide open on one side, and with all kinds of neat facades on the other.

Ryan with our tour guide!

We had fun on the riverside posing with our Belgian beer guide tour book. We used this book for recommendations for beer bars as well as restaurants. It is also a rating guide for beer houses and beers. It completely made our trip – we highly recommend it if you’re going to Belgium to try the beer. And if you’re not going to Belgium to try the beer … well, then I can’t help you anyway. :)
