About me
I’m a bit of a language and travel geek at heart, having gotten the bug for it while studying German and Italian in my home country, England. After I wrote hotel descriptions for a start-up in Berlin, did the whole Erasmus thing in Bologna, Italy, and wrote for Frommer’s travel guides while in London, I moved to Ghent in 2015. I came here to work for just one year but I still seem to be here, so I guess Ghent must be doing something right! Since then I’ve been passionate about helping others enjoy this beautiful city as much as I do.

Why Ghent
For me Ghent is the perfect mix: not too small, not too big, not too crowded, not too quiet, casual yet smart, laid-back but driven… With a lively student population and a steady stream of weekend visitors, it has a real pulse that keeps it changing. But it never loses that pretty, cobbled European city feel that first attracted me to the place.

A little away from the historic centre, I live in the Dok Noord area of Ghent which is changing by the day. Buildings are coming down, buildings are going up, and new start-up companies and food and drink hotspots are opening up all the time around here, so I’m really happy to be at the heart of the action.

Where else can you find me online?
