Today I went for a boat cruise on the river Leie which flows though Gent. We got a glimpse of the beautiful suburbs of Gent on the way out of the city and then passed through two villages. It was an experience that I cannot explain in words. So I hope that the following pictures to justice.
I will only say that such breathtaking beauty cannot be enjoyed alone. You need to experience it with someone else. Of all the days that I have been out of home, I think today I missed my wife and kids the most. OK, may not be the kids, but surely the wife. So I did the next best thing. I turned on my iPod, selected my “Easy Listening” playlist and lost myself in the scenery that slowly glided past me.
