We had been thinking about going to Rotterdam for quite a while. Seen as we have been here for 17 months and not yet gone. So we decided the week before going that we would go. We were told that the weather wouldn’t be too bad the weekend we were thinking of going.
So we went to for our train and we saw that it took 35 minutes to get to. We thought that wasn’t too bad.
We got the train and like with most train journeys in the Netherlands the sights were great.
We came out of the station after finding the journey cost us €7.50 roughly each.
We were happy with that price.
We went off for a wander to see what we could find.
This is the city hall of Rotterdam.
After a little bit more of a walk around we saw the Erasmusbrug over the river.
This is the view from part way across the bridge.
This bridge was a little bit steeper than it looks the photo.
We decided we should try and get some lunch we had seen a bagels and beans on the map. So we wandered a little more.
We then found it but finding the front door was some how difficult for us.
Obviously we got bagels for lunch and I got a chai latte.
Chris got a white bagel with butter and chocolate sprinkles or Hagelslag. It is about dutch thing but I ate or a lot when we first moved here.
I had a banana with cinnamon and maple syrup on a raisin cinnamon bagel. Oh my god it was so good.
Like I said I also had a chai latte like normal. We got some free chocolates but Eewwww they were coffee chocolates.
The next bridge we came to was Willemsbrug.
After walking over this on we saw these house on the opposite side of another canal.
We then thought we should go to the maritime museum in the docks. We didn’t know how to get in this one either but the yard open, so we thought we should go down into it.
We were actually impressed with the boats.
Crus decided he liked this train.
It was a good day out we walked a lot so we were tired obviously.
But I was impressed my FitBit was happy with me and it gave me full leaves for the amount of walking we did.
