Having Dutch friends is pretty cool. 

It was a little over an hour on the train from Amsterdam to Rotterdam. We have two friends (the nicest Dutch girls ever) who were the inspiration for our journey out. 

Rotterdam isn’t quite Amsterdam, I think we were some of the only tourists in the whole city. Despite it not being a tourist hub, it was still insanely cute and fun. It was neat to see more of the real Holland…. Which I am in love with. 

   

 

Their streets and areas have cool names….

   

  

  

 

Even the bathrooms are cool…

 

They have docks, a city sky line, massive bridges, windmills, and super weird architecture too!

 

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

Holland and all the Dutch are fabulous people. They have this wonderful mix of a “German” work ethic, but an “Amsterdam” kind of fun, while being the most “green” and environmentally conscious country. AND the people are insanely nice, easily the nicest people I’ve dealt with in Europe. They don’t have much of their “own” food but their waffles were better than any I had in Belgium and their crepes were a much better pancake idea than in France. Plus they were a very fashionable country, in a much more functional way than most of Europe. And they bike, boat, or tram everywhere. I’m in love.
