Travelling with the lens to Belgium

Becasue Brussels and Bruges are probably the most well known cities in Belgium, we decided to stay in Ghent. It’s a student city and always vibrant and alive. Simply beautiful, cool and full of design, architecture and history. Every single shop, even the butchers, were full of design!!!

Curiosity: The Lonely Planet has called the city “Europe’s best kept secret” and a must see destination for 2011 and the National Geographic Traveler Magazine has listed this city as the most authentic historic city in the world and full of life.

Guided by the locals, we found the little graffiti street! While graffiti is of course prohibited in Ghent, the city makes a couple of exceptions, and the Werregarenstraat is one of them. Street art used to be a major problem in Ghent so the government commissioned off one small avenue specifically to be used for artists. The graffiti alley, between Hoogpoort and Onderstraat, it’s a shady but colourful place where street artists can let themselves go. The appearance of the Werregarenstraat changes constantly, and this is how we found it last weekend

Bruges is beautiful as well but much more expensive and touristy.
