Flanders, Belgium

You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

Well, I think it’s pretty obvious from the past month’s posts that I have become a pretty huge fan of Flanders. In reality, my trip to Belgium couldn’t have happened at a better time. I was a little sad about leaving Asia, and Flanders really brought the message home that Europe offers a very different, yet equally rewarding opportunity for exploration and discovery. Flanders was such an impressive destination that I thought it deserved a video. If all the towns seem almost implausibly beautiful, I’m afraid that’s just Flanders.

On a completely unrelated side note, I started laughing when I uploaded this to Youtube and discovered that our last destination video was on Sumba. Somehow, the contrast between tribal Sumba and fairy tale Flanders seemed funny to me. Can a person experience multimedia culture shock?

    Found your video on Youtube. I’m going to Belgium in a couple of weeks and I can’t wait. I think I’m going to add Gent to my itinerary. It looks really beautiful.
