i spent a wonderful night and day in Gent with E and her friend T (she brought a friend with her in case i was a fat 50 year old man holding his dick...heehehe)

i'm really glad i went to Gent as well and not only Bruges...bruges is entirely picture-perfect and breathtaking, but Gent is real and lived-in, it's loved and appreciated and kept alive by the poeple who breathe it every also gave me a better understanding of belgians (the flemmish, actually) and quite simply, i love them...they seem to be wonderful people with a great style and it's not really something i saw in bruges - i didn't notice it was missing until i saw it in gent...i'll take Gent over Bruges any day (and if anyone is planning on going, uu-huuum con&helen, stay in gent and do a day trip to bruges, it's only 30mins by train)

the flemmish-stranger-girls not only made me feel welcome and showed me around, but they helped me bring a lovely end to the Solopalooza part of the Grand Europalooza...aaawwww, it's over...but from here on it's friends and family time, yey 😊

so much planning, so much to do and see, so many planes and trains to miss - and i managed them all...go me!

i'm meeting my aussie-chicks in athens tomorrow where we will play tourist, then we're off to 2 greek islands and then rome (with one of them) so my travelpod isn't over yet (i don't get home until 15 November)

so far i have travelled just over 23,000 kilometres (14,300 miles) according to travelpod, and it has consisted of 4 planes, 4 ferries, 13 trains (including 3 overnighters), and ONE balloon flight

i'm kind of sad it's over...but on the other hand I GET TO SEE MY GIRLFRIENDS...woooohhhhhoooooooooooooooooooo 😊😊😊
