moments of joy we shall remember
The first leg of our Summer tour took us to Rotterdam. This is the third largest harbour in the world (after Shanghai and Singapore), and the largest petrochemical port. We were charmed by the historic centre, the quiet tree-lined streets, and the amazing architecture in the old harbour. Rotterdam is, with Berlin, the most cycle-friendly large city in Europe, and a photographer’s paradise.
The Nederlands Fotomuseum is a wonderful place – currently exhibiting the work of Robert Doisneau. We hope you too will enjoy musing around the Erasmus bridge, at the bar of the New York hotel, and across the harbour on the Maas…
A long feast…
