Comments
Wild camping is tolerated in Belgium as long as you are only stopping for 24 hours. We found a very popular aire was full so around 20 motorhomes had parked up in a nearby office car park as it was the weekend. We passed through Belgium on our way back to the UK so the only shopping done in the supermarkets was for perishables as well as Belgian chocolates and gifts.
When we took the bus into Gent we found it was much cheaper to buy your ticket at a kiosk or machine instead of paying the driver on the bus (€2.40 instead of €4.00).
