Ghent, Belgium

This was the last stop on our trip before heading back to England and flying home. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place! Our hotel was right down town with a beautiful view of the canal and the old, gorgeous buildings. We were able to walk everywhere which is what we prefer to do. Who wants to be closed up in a car when you can be outside breathing the sweet, cool air (before going home to the hot, sticky humidity! LOL)
Here's where we stayed.The view from our window. The same buildings at night.The Castle of Counts-a 12th Century medieval fortress
Inside the castleThe view from the castleDinner at a traditional Belgium restaurant-The Palms-delicious!The city of Ghent is known for it's beauty-especially at night. The whole family had fun exploring and taking in everything in the evening.
