To conclude my Rotterdam blog post series I thought we’d have a little chat about Rotterdam in general and if it really is worth a visit. I know many of you immediately think of Amsterdam when someone mentions the Netherlands. But to tell you the truth, there are so many other beautiful parts of the country. And Rotterdam might be something for you too!
Rotterdam is the perfect place to discover new hotspots and cute little design stores. In my Rotterdam foodie guide I already talked about my favourite foodie hotspots, affordable places to eat. And I already briefly mentioned my favourite place in the whole of Rotterdam in that post too. But I just had to dedicate a whole post to Keet Rotterdam as I love this little place so much!
I was in desperate need of a little city break so we decided to go for a little weekend away to Rotterdam, a vibrant and lively city in the Netherlands. I live in Belgium so it wasn’t too far away and we got there without any delays. I feel like there is no better way to start of my Rotterdam post series with a mouth-watering blog post for all of you food-lovers.
I really can’t stop talking about coffee, can I? If you have been reading Ella Was Here for a while, you’ll know that I am a bit of a coffee addict. And so when I came across this lovely shop, Thelma Coffee and Design on Instagram the other day, I just had to go for a little visit.
The Japanese Garden in Hasselt, Belgium, is one of my favourite places to visit for a relaxing walk during the weekend. It is absolutely breath-taking this time of year with the blossoms making the garden just a tad extra special. I didn’t have the chance to go during the spring time the past few years, but this year I finally made in time to see the garden in bloom!
