IMG 0256The weather smiled on us for the most part and barring it being a little cold we had a splendid day in this charming town.

Excursions included St Michaels bridge and church, we climbed the bell tower (particularly good this), visited the very large St Baafsplein church, took a boat trip, ate a belgian waffle, looked around the market, visited the castle of the counts (including the horrid torture instrument display), ate a belgian ice cream, took a ride on a horse carriage and people watched by the canal.

Overall as the tuitle suggests we very much enjoyed our visit to Ghent and feel we could easily have done another day or two.

Dinner at Du Progress was very efficient and very nice.
