I (solo woman traveler) will be in Belgium in July, arriving from London on Eurostar on Tuesday afternoon, staying in Gent for 3 (or possibly 4 nights).
Here's my tentative plan:
Arrive in Brussels, check the bag at the train station and spend the evening. I just read on this forum about the sound & light show at 10.30 pm at the Grand Palace. Could I see that and then get my luggage and train to Gent? Will the left luggage be open? Are there trains that late? I will buy a Eurostar London-ABS ticket. Is there a time restriction on the continuing journey from Brussels to Gent?
I plan to stay at the Ibis St. Baafs in Gent. Which is the nearer train station? I expect to take a taxi to the hotel.
Is Wednesday a good day for my day trip to Brugge? I remember reading that Wed. is market day???
Thanks for any and all assistance and ADVICE.
