Cool spot- Ghent



If you're looking for a fabulous European getaway, then you might want to consider the Belgian city of Ghent. Think Venice with attitude, this quaint little city has all the elements you need for a cultural break away, with a little touch of urban thrown in. It's a university town, so it's full of bars, restaurants, little independent stores and life. I ambled round the pretty streets  snapping away at the gorgeous little shops, took a trip along the river Leie and ate rather a lot of Belgium waffles... Oops! With loads of stuff to do with the kids from exploring the Castle to taking a river cruise, you're sure to fall in love with this city... I did!
