Although still cold, the sun was shining – so why not take a trip to the Belgian coast? There are so many cities in Beligum I’d still like to visit and Ostend was at the top of my list.
Marvin Gaye fans may know Ostend because he moved there in 1981. After a lot of heavy drug use, he escaped to the Belgian to get clean and find a bit of personal peace. It was in Ostend where he wrote and recorded his biggest hit “Sexual Healing”. The video was also filmed in Ostend at the Casino-Kursaal!
I really wanted to visit the James Ensor Museum, but unfortunately it was closed for rennovations. So we took the time to walk along the water, enjoy a beer in a local bar and have a delicious seafood dinner!
