Around the Netherlands: Rotterdam

Today we visit the impressiv modern market hall building, where we have breakfast at a couple of different stalls – you can sample very delicious food here.

…and from the inside


Just oposite are the Kubus buildings where you can visit one of the houses in this crazy shape.

At the Erasmus bridge we get tickets for a harbour cruise, which is a great way to visit the huge harbour area of Rotterdam. We are lucky and the sun is shining. We see a lot of docks and ships of all sizes, we also come past the SS Rotterdam wich we will visit next.

at the harbour
do you see the emergeny exit ?

You can book a tour through the ship, which is now a hotel and restaurant. We save the money and just take a coffee at the bar on the deck.

On our way home we stop again at the market hall to get some bread and tomatoes.

In the evening we go into town again to eat at a Sushi Restaurant, but it is closed so we take a Vapiano which offers pasta and pizza which are prepared in front of you. It’s opposite the train station.

What I also like about Rotterdam is the completely mixed population with so many interesting faces. Just to sit and watch people walk by is fascinating.
