I made a trip in Rotterdam. It's a city used to famous for its harbor and nowadays becomes a paradise for young architectures. It's modern and with a long history, futuristic architecture, inspired local initiatives such as inner-city canal surfing, a proliferation of art, and a surge of drinking, making it one of the most energetic and vivid cities in Europe.
I went to Kinderdijk in the Nederlands the other day when my friend from China came to visit. It's a village close to Rotterdam. There are many lovely windmills in the area. I live in Flanders for a couple of years already, but strangely I haven't explored this famous windmill village. Thanks to my friend's visit, I finally got the chance to visit this place. It was actually easy for us to get there. First we took a train to Dordrecht from Belgium, then a direct bus to Kinderdijk. I guess sometimes we are lazy to explore the nearby area, thinking it's nothing special but actually it can be as nice as more remote places.
