Between 2009 and 2010 I was living and working in Ghent. I learnt to love this exciting city long before I finally moved there.

it has a stunning, well preserved mediaeval city centre and in the twelfth century this was the biggest city in northern Europe. Now it is the stage for the Gentse Feesten. This place is packed with fine scenery, beautiful people and lots of excitement.

On my racing bike I rode in all directions, using the fietsroutes in Oost-Vlaanderen near Ghent, which worked as a charm, leaving me to enjoy the scenery. I became a member of the Unizo cycling team and together in this group we completed in the summer of 2009 the so-calledDodentocht.

Ghent is a perfect citytrip - you'll be staying longer than planned, which is even better! More information is available here:
