What’s a funny mistake you’ve made in your travels?
Holland is known for their windmills. We wanted to photograph some while we were there, but we weren’t too keen on going all the way out to Kinderdijk (the crowds it also draws didn’t sound too appealing, either).
Rotterdam is a particularly bike friendly city. We had to be careful when crossing the street that we didn’t get run over. With lots of bike lanes and ample bike storage garages such as these, there’s no reason to not take yours out for a spin!
Holland is a land of many winding canals, amazing architecture, old churches, traditional windmills, and rich culture. These things easily made us fall in love with the area. During our trip, we spent most of our time in Rotterdam and did several day trips from there. The places we visited were sometimes even better than our home base of Rotterdam. Can you guess which city was our favorite? It may not be what you expect.
If you wind up in Rotterdam, do yourself a favor and check out the really cool Markthal. Located right in the center of town (within spitting distance of the Cube Houses), this indoor market is a fascinating place to visit.
Rotterdam is known for its unique architecture. When the city was leveled during WWII, the city voted to start fresh rather than rebuild what was there. This created a city with an architecturally young center.
