One of my childhood friends was from Belgium, and her family moved to South Africa early on. My curiosity about this country was satisfied in January this year when I went to Ghent for a training course. I took a few days to explore Ghent before the course. It was cold and everywhere I went the smell of chocolate pervaded the streets. It was bliss…
Christmas lights were still up and the markets still active. I left on the day that they started to take all this down.
I’m going back in July, for another training course in Geetbets. I’m slowly exploring Belgium, town by town, and I’m loving what I’ve seen. I’ll be spending a few days in Brussels before travelling to Geetbets. I have no clue of how to get there and I’m hoping that it will involve train travel.

I haven’t formally entered this year’s challenge but thought I’d enter anyway. It will give focus to my blogging this month, especially since I haven’t been particularly active here in the last month. I don’t have a particular theme. All I know is that it will include photos. Lots of them.
Please come around to read my posts in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. Or better yet, sign up for the email newsletter or follow me on WordPress to get posts in your reader 🙂

I transited at Antwerpen-Centraal train station on my way from Amsterdam to Ghent in January. I’d read that it was considered the most beautiful train station in the world, as awarded by Mashable in 2014. Naturally, I was curious and was gobsmacked at its beauty. Unfortunately, I didn’t leave the station to photograph the exterior, but I did walk around a bit and took a few pics.
