    Don't take any wooden nickels!

    Luggage and bags: Lock it up with a pad lock folks. No joke!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take some crapy clothes with you. Then replace them with new cool new ones you buy alone the way. Donate you old ones to a hostel.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring cold meds. They are hard to find in little towns.

    Miscellaneous: And of coarse there’s this old one: “Lay out all the clothes you want to take with you. Take out half the clothes and double your money and you should be fine.”

    Comfortable shoes are a must

    Luggage and bags: cross body handbag/purse to keep your hands free for your shopping!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: you need to make sure you have comfortable shoes - the streets are cobbled and you do a lot of walking so sturdy flat shoes are at home - save your heels for the hotel bar!

    Photo Equipment: make sure you have plenty of memory for your camera!

    These shoes are made for walking

    Luggage and bags: What can I say, A guy is happy to go in the clothes he's wearing, a woman will take 14 suitcases worth of nice outfits.
    So thats why you never get many women in space? (haha I'm only joking )

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bruges and Ghent are walking cities, so take comfortable reliable shoes (especially ones that don't run out on you! ) There's a joke there somewhere. Seriously take care on the cobblestones.

    Clothing is generally smartly relaxed and informal, but expensive restaurants will expect male guests to wear ties.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I'm sorry but I don't know or wish to know all my VT members medical history. So I'm sure you will know excactly what you need. But like me there's no cure for The travel bug.....!

    Photo Equipment: Camera's, films, check your batteries and get snapping.

    Walking shoes, warm clothes, umbrella.

    by hobanma Updated May 26, 2003

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Be prepared to do lots of walking. I was there in May and it was cool, damp, and very very windy. Plan on layering and be sure to have something for rain - a jacket or umbrella.

    Photo Equipment: Take lots of film or have plenty of memory for your digital camera.

    Luggage and bags: Take a backpack with you. There is some walking around to do. Also it's a long walk from the busstation or trainstation to the centre of town. You can also take the bus of course, but the busses here are rather small and it's hard to fit your luggage in.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring some warm clothes and some for sunny days. The weather easily changes here.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Mosquitos here (some at night) even in spring. So bring your anti mosquito stuff with you.

    Photo Equipment: Bring lots of film (you can also buy it here) because you can't stop taking pictures for sure!

    Miscellaneous: On the picture: Muriel, Wendy, Nicolien, Sandra (Rooie) and Cecilia up front.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Walking shoes! Remember also that this is Northern Europe, and you're likely to need warm clothing (even in the height of summer you might need something warm to wear in the evening).

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: My pictures are deceiving. The sun only shone for one short afternoon. Your trip will be uncomfortable if you do not pack proper rain gear. Dress in layers and bring well worn shoes for all of the walking that you will be doing.

    Miscellaneous: Bring an appetite for beer and chocolate :-)
