Dirk V.

Ghent, Oost-Vlaanderen, Belgium

Born and raised in the Ghent area, I am fascinated by the multicultural history of Flanders' cities & beyond.

My aim is to provide you with a personal and professional service: not only to teach you something but also to reach you. I studied economics & public relations at the Hogeschool Ghent and by ending up in the travel industry, I got the opportunity to travel all continents. After my travel career I took a year off, guiding different parties in & around Ghent and also following a training as a travel guide. Today I like to share my experience and knowledge as a guide for interested travelers from all over the world.
"You are a bridge-builder between diverse people", that's how a friend-writer once told me. I believe this is an appropriate description of myself. Looking for beauty in people, music, architecture and culture is my passion. Being on the road I find more interesting than the end goal itself. As the famous scientist Einstein ever pretended: "logic takes you from A to B, imagination takes you everywhere. "
