One of the houses is open as a showcube for the curious onlooker, offering a view of the interiors. The cubes are now available as rental accomodation too, for out of town visitors.
A dear friend, who spent a year in the city, did suggest a picnic lunch in Kralingse Bos, so go for it if you visit on a sunny day, or head out to the Het Park. You can enjoy boat rides round the year too, to give you a taste and feel of the city. For the art aficionados, have a go at Kunsthal and/or the Maritime Museum or Boijmans Van Beuningen - the latter houses masterpieces from Bosch, Rembrandt, Van Gogh to Rubens and more... what I'm trying to say here is, Rotterdam has something for everyone, and every bit of it is quirky, amazing and beautiful.
Anyone who knows me knows how meticulously I plan our holidays - primarily because we have to keep the Little One comfortable and entertained through it all. But sometimes, I let the day and place surprise me - and draw me into its magic. Rotterdam did that for me, and I look forward to taking it all in, at a more leisurely pace, on a bright sunny day soon.
What about you? Have you been to Rotterdam? Is it on your bucket list now? Do share your thoughts... I would love to hear back from you.
Until next time,
