13th of August 2018:
Shortly after Brussels we met Mr Eddy (a friend of Joel), who cycled himself in more than a dozen countries. He welcomed us sincerely and cycled with us to Gent, where he invited us for a pizza and a drink. After the generous sponsoring, the Belgian showed us the city and accompanied us for some more kilometres. Beyond Gent, a storm broke out and we paused below a highway bridge to wait until the rain stopped. After more than 100km, we reached the campground directly before Bruges.
