A few weeks ago we were able to enjoy the first sun in Belgium, after we were plagued by extreme (by Belgian standards) winter weather. On Sunday 23 February I spontaneously decided to make a day trip to Ghent, a city that is so close to my home town Oostende and where I have rarely been (shame!). Since it was super crowdy in the city center, I decided to visit the suburbs. With my favo streetartcities.com application switched on, of course :). What struck me most is the urban planning in Ghent. Everywhere there are new modern residential areas, with a lot of attention to the green environment and outdoors facilities: tables and benches for a picnic, many new cycle paths and new safe playgrounds for the children. Just awesome and fascinating.
I had a fantastic sunny day in Ghent, a city that I will revisit in the near future (I haven’t seen all the street art in Ghent yet :)). Enjoy my Thursday Doors uploads and have a nice days folks :).
