Damn guides

Posted by John Sturm on 01/29/2003 10:33:13 AM

On our first trip to Belgium Eve and I opted not to stay in Gent because our "guide" (I think it was a Lonely Planet guide) refered to it as a grimy industrial city. However on our way from Antwerpen to Brugge we jumped of the train to take in what we could of Gent in an hour or so. We were amazed at how beautiful the city really was. On our next trip, in 1996, we made sure to spend several days in Gent and I hope to spend a few days there in 2003 as well.

BTW that reminds me of another question. The practice of "jumping off a train" and getting back on isn't really allowed is it?
