I had my very first glance at Ghent at a nightly hour, now three years ago. I truly felt I had stepped into a fairytale where the prettiest houses and lights were reflected on the water of the endless canals. The scenery felt unreal, like I was walking in the sets of a big Hollywood movie. As a regular visitor nowadays, I recently spent happy 10 days in Ghent and still consider it as one of the loveliest cities in the world. Yet, nothing really defeats the nightly walks… maybe one can be a character in a story book after all.
