What To Do In Rotterdam, The Netherlands | Eileen Aldis Travel Channel
What To Do In Rotterdam, The Netherlands
This video is a city guide and city tour of Rotterdam. You'll see my top 5 highlights of one of the most modern cities in Europe.
Above all, Rotterdam is a city with vision. It was very nearly completely destroyed during World War II and chose to see the devastating loss as an opportunity to innovate and build anew. The city was a blank slate for architects and artists. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes of war, this Dutch city has become a city of the future. Rotterdam is a centre for design, art, architecture, and sustainability. Locals joke that you should take a photo of the skyline today because it won't be the same tomorrow.
The Floating Forest is a great symbol of all that Rotterdam cultivates and inspires. It's an art installation of twenty live trees floating in the harbour. Rotterdam has the largest harbour in Europe and you can't talk about the city without reference to the water. The trees are recycled from the city's 'tree bank.' With all the new construction, trees are sometimes cut down in the march of progress. Now, instead of being chopped, they are moved to a tree bank for further use and enjoyment. The trees float in recycled sea buoys that are filled with fresh water to sustain the trees. The artist, Jorge Bakker, hopes the public art will get people talking about the relationship between the city dweller and nature. In this time of climate change and urbanization, this is relevant not only to Rotterdam but the entire world.
The Erasmus Bridge - Erasmusbrug, in Dutch - is the graceful link between northern and southern Rotterdam. Locals adore this steel-cabled suspension bridge and lovingly refer to it as 'the swan.'
Nearby the bridge, and across from the Fenix Food Factory, is Hotel New York. This is the former head office of the Holland America Line - the first shipping and passenger ship connecting the Netherlands and the United States. It was also the first connection between the two continents.
The newest architectural gem of Rotterdam is the Market Hall (Markthal). It's the first covered market in the Netherlands and is a masterful example of innovative multi-use space. Inside you'll find food vendors, shops, restaurants, parking for 1200 cars and over 200 residential apartments. The exterior is plain grey stone so as to draw attention to the interior which is dominated by the massive painting on the ceiling. Covering 11,000 square metres, it's the largest painting in the world and is known as the Sistine Chapel of Rotterdam.
Just across from the Markthal are the world-famous, iconic cube houses. Conceived and designed in the 1970s to solve the dilemma of housing above a pedestrian bridge, these atypical homes show, again, how Rotterdam answers limitation with innovation. The cube houses are meant to represent an abstract forest and are tilted at an angle that gives excellent views of the surrounding area. Ironically, however, because of the slanted walls and ceilings, only a quarter of the interior space is actually usable.
Looking around, it's easy to see why Rotterdam feels futuristic and is leading the way for green living and modern design. Have you visited Rotterdam? I'd love to hear your impressions so please leave a comment down below.

MAHAHUAL, MEXICO - We've NEVER seen anything like this (In a bad way)
We spent one week in the beach paradise Mahahual (Mexico) and it was NOTHING like what we expected.
►Learn Spanish like us!
Mahahual, a town in the state of Quintana Roo is commonly known as Costa Maya. It's the only place we've visited in Mexico where almost 100% of its income is from cruise ship travelers. This makes for an interesting dynamic—one we really don't like, frankly.
Having 1-3 Mexico cruise ships stopping at Costa Maya very easily explains many of the strange things we found in this town. All the locals are catering directly to those visitors because they support the local economy. They speak English with you. You can pay in US dollars. Everyone who works in Mahahual is there to help these Mexico cruise ship travelers have a great time during their day in town.
But watch out! Once the cruise ships leave, most of the restaurants, shops, and activities will close their doors. It looks like a ghost town once Mahahual when no ships are docked.
In this Mexico travel video, we give you some tips on how to make your stay in Mahahual more enjoyable and affordable.
Mahahual, Quintana Roo is certainly beautiful....but is it worth it?

Things To Know Before You Go To Bryce Canyon National Park
Bryce Canyon National Park Mud-Bogging
Hey you guys! Thank you for joining me on another journey. We are here at Bryce Canyon National Park in Garfield County. This is one of the top Utah vacations to be had. Its magnificent hoodoos are like nothing you've ever seen before. Driving through Bryce Canyon, the spectacular beauty can be taken in at the viewpoints like these: Sunrise, Sunset, Inspiration and Bryce, Paria View, Swamp Canyon, Whiteman Bench, Farview Point, Piracy Point, Agua Canyon, Ponderosa Canyon, Black Birch Canyon. To more fully experience the park though, we hiked down the horse trail near Sunset Point since it was off-season in February. We encountered some patches of snow and ice, so we were very glad to have ice cleats to put on our hiking boots. The attractions of the park were even more amazing down among the limestone sculptures. It was so interesting to have Ranger Emily tell us about the canyon. We ended up finding a dirt road perfect for mud-bogging in our rental car, a Nissan Versa, outside of Bryce. That was a blast! We found affordable lodging in Panguitch for the night. It was so cool to later experience the night sky in Bryce Canyon and test our astronomy knowledge. This park is easily accessible by flying into Las Vegas or Salt Lake City and then renting a car--I suggest a four wheel drive--and driving the few hours there. Here's a travel tip for you: if you come in the winter, you may need snowshoes. These are some of the sights & trails you should check out: Sunrise Point Sunset Point , Navajo Trail, Queen's Garden Trail , Peek-a-Boo Trail, Inspiration Point, Mossy Cave Trail, Fairyland Trail, Tower Bridge and Natural Bridge.
CANYON LODGE MOTEL is a small, American family-owned motel known for its cozy comfort, cleanliness, quiet location and reasonable rates.
