Gent, Belgium

After our time in Brugge we took the train to Gent for a roller derby tournament. Gent is really nice, but I like Brugge just a bit better

After we got checked in where we were staying we went to get some lunch at Avalon. We ordered the lasagna

And one of the plates of the day. I love plates like this! I get to try all the food! We had eaten here last time and it was top on the list of places to go back to. 







Some photos from breaks in roller derby - sitting outside in the sun for a bit






The place that holds the roller derby tournament always has lots of vegan treats for us!

Dinner at De Frietketel - another place we went last time and wanted to go back


We tried two different burgers

And of course some fries and some veggie balls. The balls were different from last time, but still tasty. And I think that is a small fry. It was a ton of food!

Breakfast at roller derby! Delicious vegan baked goods!


This is an outdoor play area next to where the derby is held. 



Like an obstacle course set up in the grass




There is not a lot out by where derby is held

Lunch from derby - like a beef stew and potatoes. So tasty!



Some ice cream on a hot day





There were two food events going on while we were there. One a food cart festival and one a fancier foods event, but they were right next to each other in the center of town. 



We tried a veggie dog with popcorn! And a pretzel bun


And the Dutch weed burger - pretty good

Wandering around town






Close to where we were staying in the center of town we found the graffiti/street art alley!














It is not that long, and it is right in the middle of all the fancy buildings downtown. It seems a bit out of place, but I loved it





Dinner at Greenway - a kebab wrap with salad

And a smoked jalapeno burger

And a brownie for dessert. We went here last time as well, but I didn't like it that much. I wasn't planning on going back, but not much was open late nearby so when we wanted dinner it was one of the few options we had. It was a lot better than I had remembered which was good





Another lunch at roller derby - schnitzel, green beans, and potatoes. This is always the best tournament food! I love it!


Dinner at Thai Thanee - spring rolls

And curry. I love Thai food!

Some strange art we walked by

And walking back to our room after dinner. We were in Gent for a few days, but most of it was spent watching derby. Plus last time we went for this tournament we spent the day prior exploring the city. And that was our Belgium adventure last year!
