Hey guys, just some tips.

Cheapest/fastest way of going to Belgium is probably with Ryanair or Wizzair and with hand luggage. You end up in Charleroi airport where you can take the train to Ghent which takes about 1h30. You pay your flight ticket + 5 euro's to get in to Charleroi train station + your train ticket Charleroi-Ghent (one way around 16 euro's)

If you come with more than just hand luggage a busticket might be cheaper (with Ryanair you pay 15 euro's extra for 15kg luggage). The bad thing about the bustrip is that you most likely sit a hole day on a bus.
From UK and France Megabus is freaking cheap. Eurolines from other places in Europe. Most of the time those buses stop in Ghent which makes it very convenient.
The faster you buy the ticket the cheaper it will be with those companies.

I am considering bringing my pc, but it is rather huge so...... are there any size restrictions for personal equipment?
You got 1.20m width as your space. Depth/height of place is not mentoined, but probably would be a normal table.
ah, alright. Because my pc is low in height, but big in width and kinda square shaped, so I was afraid it wasn't gonna fit. Thx :D

I am really skeptical about whether or not I should go. I am going to a festival that officially ends the 4th. If I drive home earlier (the 3rd) to pack and do laundry, and drive to Belgium which takes about 11 hrs (with my sister, we are meeting my parents in London the 6th). Opinions? :lol:
