After much hassle of getting here, Rotterdam did not disappoint us. Although we have wasted for one full day in the storm, we managed to catch up with what we had planned to do and see for this city. We had a growing belly and growing luggage to carry to the next city.
What we thought to be 2 hours delay, we ended up stranded at Essen and then at Roosendaal for a total of 8 hours. The wind is not the most forgiving element today. I am very surprised how well the fellow travelers waited at this unplanned and unfortunate event - it was a really endearing scene to see strangers encouraging each other and offering their share of food they have brought along for the trip. In this code red stormy day, this person beside me is still shining so brightly with his smiles. I could not ask for a better person to go through any given bad day.
On our way to Rotterdam, we are stucked here for 2 hours due to technical and weather problems. Though this is such a beautiful station, we are so glad to finally get moving.
Just a quick tour to Antwerp: it was (almost) snowing here. Moving to Netherlands tomorrow; we just cannot wait for it!
The last day at Brussels was beautiful. The weather prediction was going to be wet and rainy, but it turned out to be a clear day with a hint of glorious sun.
Fall in love with this space at first step - another Victor Hocta’s building with a twist of playfulness. It was a perfect setting for the comic strips in Belgium.
A privilege to visit Victor Horta’s building, displaying the opulence of Art Nouveau in its greatest height.
Museum hopping: Underground palace in the middle of the city centre.
Brugge: It is hard to say goodbye to this charming town. Worth staying here for a night or two.
