'Vaarwel' to Belgium and 'Grüezi' to Switzerland.



So as we leave Belgium, we leave with a heavy heart! We can honestly say that Belgium is an amazing place full of surprisingly unforgettable cities and more to the point people.  

This was the first country that we travelled in and also the first to say yes to the Exchange of art for accommodation idea.  When we first planned the idea, we had no idea of the response of each individual hostel or hostel owners.  But the 6 hostels that we did could not have welcomed us more and to make truly good friends along the way has blown us away!

I think it was Dram in our first hostel in Ghent that explained to us what each city is like:

  • Brussels is the capital and is full of business suits  
  • Brugges is full of Tourists
  • Antwerp is full of Hipsters
  • And Ghent is nice mix of them all.


After visiting all these cities i think he is absolutely right! Ghent, I think is our favourite city in Belgium, (sorry to the others, we love you all) But this city does have it all,  from the cool and quirky bars, to vibrant music scene, to the hugely interactive art scene. also not forgetting the unique hostel on a barge..

We even plan to come back for the Ghent Festival in July to sell IDa4 art work.

But Each hostel had been so accommodating, with giving us our private rooms, cooked meals, free drinks at the bar and even presents when we leave! 

All above and beyond what we could have expected and imagined. 
 THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! xx
