Rotterdam: A Rose in a Concrete Jungle

This felt like home to me. It was just gritty enough for my liking without losing any of its charm. A beautiful balance between vintage and modern while remaining unapologetically Dutch. Rotterdam should be part of your itinerary. You could go to the EuroMast to check out the views, but I prefer to walk and take the trams. The Kubuswoningen (cube houses) located near the Blaak station is a must-see for anyone interested in architecture.  On the other side is Oude Haven (old port) which is also home to one of the largest markets in the Netherlands.
