During our visit to Gent we stayed in a beautifully decorated Bed and Breakfast, called 'Engelen aan de Waterkant'. The owner is an interior designer, and it shows. Our bedroom was tastefully decorated in black and white, with the most beautiful fabrics, bedlinnen and accessories. The bathroom, with a fresco on one wall and a roll top bath, soooo beautiful! I haven't even told you yet about the delicious breakfast, with fresh croissants & Belgian bread, yogurt with fruit and coffee and tea served out of silver pot. The B&B is situated in 'Het Zuid', a very lively part of Gent and about a 15 minute walk to the city centre.
Today some pictures of the B&B, but also of the streets, alleys and markets we walked through. I think Gent is a great place for shopping too. It simply has class. You could have seen me standing in front of the Delvaux shop, looking at the most exquisite handbags. It's a pity the bags are so expensive! I also enjoyed the shop 'Home Linen', which has a lovely collection of lace and linen tablecloths, napkins, night dresses, etc. The flowermarket on 'De Kouter' and the brocante market which takes place during the weekend on the St Jacobsplaats are great too. I bought a lovely white terrine with little blue flowers for only five euro. Isn't that a bargain?! You can see it on my last picture, together with the terrine I took home with me from Antwerp last year.
Well that's it for now. Wish you all a happy wednesday!
Lieve groet, Madelief
