Let me start by something remarkable: for the first time in my 22-years I managed to not only follow my schedule, but to actually be ahead of it. Yes, I have time left to study, something must be wrong. Anyways, in September I visited t’Gravensteen in Gent/Ghent, a city in Flanders, Belgium. Gent might probably be my favorite city in Belgium. There is just something about it. Together with a friend we decided to be tourists in our own country and explore ‘t Gravensteen, a medieval castle.

From the palaces I moved on towards the center of Brussels. I first passed along the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula.
I love travelling, and want to see as much of the world as possible. Yet only 30 minutes away, can be found the most beautiful places. Being a tourist in my own country sometimes feels kinda strange, but I like it a lot. I like that I still get to be amazed, surprised, by sights, history, art… in my own country. Travelling doesn’t need to be a trip far away, it doesn’t need to be in the ‘top 10 places to visit’. It can be simple, it can for example be my own capital.
