A Taste of the Gravensteen Castle

What is the best tour you’ve ever been on?

gravensteen-1

The Gravensteen Castle is a popular attraction in Ghent, and we almost passed it by as just another touristy thing to do. After all, we could see quite a bit of it from the outside.

However, we’re so glad we went inside! Continue reading “A Taste of the Gravensteen Castle”

A Taste of Ghent’s Graffiti Alley

Do you have any interesting street art near you?

We stumbled upon this colorful alley simply by happenstance while walking through the quaint city of Ghent. A haven for street artists, this short stretch is constantly changing as new paint is added day after day. This is an open canvas in a “graffiti-friendly” city.

A Taste of Ghent

Where is your favorite cute small town or village?

From the moment we set foot in the cute little town of Ghent, we instantly fell in love. It might have helped that the central square is dominated by three massive cathedrals (and I’m a sucker for cool architecture).

A Taste of Amsterdam

What’s the coolest bar you’ve been to?

Call us crazy, but we were actually somewhat underwhelmed by Amsterdam. Perhaps it’s because we had spent so much time already in its sister, Rotterdam, that it just didn’t amaze us all that much. Additionally, there were a LOT of people – most of them on bikes. We had to be careful to not get run over as we tried to walk the city.

A Taste of Delft

What day trip would you do again in a heartbeat?

Delft is a quaint town and a fun day trip from Rotterdam! We instantly fell in love with the winding alleys, the tight lines of buildings, and the leaning towers. We even had to find a wooden shoe to pose in!

A Taste of Holland Windmills

What’s a funny mistake you’ve made in your travels?

Holland is known for their windmills. We wanted to photograph some while we were there, but we weren’t too keen on going all the way out to Kinderdijk (the crowds it also draws didn’t sound too appealing, either).

A Taste of Biking in Rotterdam

Where do you like to bike?

Rotterdam is a particularly bike friendly city. We had to be careful when crossing the street that we didn’t get run over. With lots of bike lanes and ample bike storage garages such as these, there’s no reason to not take yours out for a spin!
