I'm ba-ack!

I’m ba-ack! Yes, I survived a week in Gent with the students of my class. It was amazing and so much fun. Very much educational, I learned a lot about the history of Gent and took lot of wonderful photo’s that I can use in my classes.

The first day we arrived we had a lot of luck, because the weather was amazing. Not too hot, but also not too cold. We could go out without our jackets. Because The Netherlands was playing football on the telly, a lot of the students went to a square where a big screen was airing the game. Me and my best friend didn’t wanted to see it, so we went into the city. We sat outside on a terrace and had these amazing sandwiches with salmon. Our view was fantastic. FYI Holland won!

When the game was over,we all went for a walk with our teachers. They told us a lot about the city and we took a lot of pictures.
The next day we went to Brugge. We went with the train and it was as amazing as Gent. Here we got a walking tour with our teachers. Again lots of information. Me and my best friend went in the break to the tower and climb up 600 stairs. We made it, but I’m not going to tell you how. LOL. We also went into a few churches!

On the third day we went to a medieval castle in Gent. Medieval is my favourite subject to learn and read about. So I was really excited, when we went inside and looked around. Our guide was this female who knew a lot about the castle and she was telling with so much enthusiasm that time flew bye.

On Thursday we went to Ieper. This city was completely destroyed in World War I. The museum was great and left a big impression on all of the students. Here I bought a book about the War and a card with the famous poem on it. (Flanders Field)

And now we are back! The city was amazing and if you ever go to Belgium, you must see Gent. We have a few exams next week, so I’m not going to spend a lot of time on the internet. You can still enter my international contest till the 9th of July.

I love Gent, I've been there several times with my students, since we usually do class exchanges with a school in Aalst which is not far from there. My Belgian colleagues are friendly and generous and it's always great to be there. Gent is a lovely medieval city with a special charm thanks to its canals and all those young people, lots of flowers and historical sites. Good memories, indeed. Thanks for sharing, Nina.
