rotterdam in 50 pictures is some of the best pictures i took during my recent day trip.
i kept on postponing this day trip. because i had caught a cold and i felt more like cuddling in my hotel bed with a book then going away. after my cold got a little better, the weather got a little worse. also, i avoided dead days such as mondays or the 5th of may, a big public holiday in the netherlands. so i ended up seeing rotterdam on my last day. and i loved it!
this is a visual post but i will be back with a top 5 rotterdam post with more details about the highlights.
here is the unforgettable angular shape of the centraal station.
this is the hallucinating ceiling of the newly re-done markthal.
below, you have the bibliotheek rotterdam aka the public library.
this is the blaak toren.
a full view of the market from outside.
these are the famous cube houses.
by chance, i came across a gundam statue. click here for more!
this is sylvette by pablo picasso.
i loved visiting the museum boijmans!
i loved this piece because the artist didn’t use the regular pretty natural motifs like flowers or leaves. i’d like to have tableware decorated with thistly!
this is the chabot museum, also in the museumpark.
the kunsthal was another cool surprise!
that is the euromast tower in the distance.
back to the museum, this is the fake fur opening of the exhibition about furries.
a cute little arrangement in a vintage store.
this was a very cute place by the station. they were selling bubble tea and such. i enjoyed putting my drink together but not drinking it. the chewy tapioca balls were good though.
if you have the chance, give rotterdam a go. you’ll like it!
