Flanders Is A Festival 2012

Those of you who are following me on Facebook or Twitter will have noticed that I’ve spent the past week in Belgium. I have been invited by Tourism Flanders on what they called the world’s biggest blog trip, inviting 100 bloggers from all over the world to visit a festival of their choice and do some sightseeing in Belgium.

After flying to Brussels from Vienna, I arrived in Gent on Thursday afternoon. I didn’t actually know a lot about the city, except that it’s hosting I Love Techno festival each year in November. Staying there for two nights I spent most of the time just wandering around in the city, randomly discovering beautiful plazas, old buildings and nice bars, all within walking distance. If you’re ever there, make sure to have a Delirium (it’s said to be the best beer in the world) and stop by De Kastart for the best spaghetti in town. Also met up with Laurens from Aerotronic, don’t sleep on their latest remix for Sinéad O’Connor!

On Saturday I caught an early train over to Antwerp for Laundry Day festival, one of the craziest festivals I’ve ever been to. Read more about Laundry Day festival and watch some incredible photos here! Obviously I had a great time in Belgium, meeting lots of cool people and visiting beautiful cities. Can’t wait to get back for some more festivals next year!
