I'll be doing the RS Belgium/Holland Tour in June. I'm getting ready to make reservations for my hotel since I arrive for the tour one day ahead of time. I haven't really decided if I should just go directly to Ghent from the airport, stay in Brussels overnight then go to Ghent the next morning, or perhaps, train to Luxembourg and stay there overnight before going to Ghent.
I enjoy photography, people watching, just walking around and getting the feel of a place, and an occasional museum.
I wouldn't mind going to Luxembourg since I doubt I'll get there again any time soon and it looks beautiful, in terms of photography opportunities. I'm not sure how far it is from Brussels airport and if it makes sense to travel "all that way" for just one evening, especially as I'll be jetlagged?
Or, should I stay in Brussels overnight and check out things there? I've heard there's actually not tons to do there. Or, should I just head straight to Ghent and get ready for the tour.
FYI, other than an afternoon in Brussels about 20 years ago, I haven't been to any of these places.
Thanks as always!
