The citadel and cathedral in Dinant

Yesterday was probably the best day I’ve had in Belgium so far. A group of ten of us headed out for a day trip to the small town of Dinant, about an hour away by train from Louvain-la-neuve. Despite being upset that the creperie didn’t open early enough for us to get breakfast before leaving, we were still optimistic. Arriving in Dinant we were greated by loads of sunshine and a gorgeous little town. We spent the day hiking up 400 stairs to the citadel on the hill, checking out the gothic cathedral, playing in a playground, exploring some caves, and enjoying the city where the saxophone was invented. If anyone is in Belgium for an extended period of time, taking a day to visit Dinant is a definite must! Our day was followed by dinner and drinks back in good ol’ LLN and out to the bar. My friend Marshall was visiting for the weekend, and I think he definitely got a good taste of Beglium culture!

Gingervere is the Middle English origin of ginger. Despite being the go-to word to describe redheads, some definitions of ginger are: spirit, liveliness, vigor, piquancy, enliven, and animation.

I'm a 21-year-old student originally from Canada, but currently on an adventure in Belgium for the semester. This blog will follow me, my musings, and whatever shenanigans I get up to while I travel around Europe and occassionally attend classes.
