Paris to Ghent, Belgium

This morning after our coffee and croissants we checked out of our Paris hotel and walked two miles up the Seine to the bus terminal.

Duke had reserved the top floor front row seats of our bus so we had a wonderful view of the French country side as we headed north.

In Ghent we walked from where the bus dropped us off about a mile to our hotel in the center. In the Middle Ages Ghent was a wealthy seaport. As a result It is absolutely full of beautiful old buildings. After checking in to our hotel we had a lot of fun wandering around the trafic free central area.

We had dinner at Du Progres. We shared a chateaubriand. It was wonderful.
