LET’S FALL IN LOVE WITH THIS PLACE

DSC_0121
Born and raised in Rotterdam but left with a big desire for other places. You can call me wanderlust. For years I have been critical towards my hometown, you can say I’m ‘the grass is always greener on the other side’, type of girl. Mel is quite the opposite and I’d admire that about her.

Mel sees beauty in everything,  she sees art in the weirdest things that you could ever think of. She saw the true beauty of Rotterdam even before the New York Times said that Rotterdam is hot. It’s not that I dislike my city, not at all. I love my city, it’s home.  Two days ago I was in Amsterdam. On my way home I saw in the distance the beautiful skyline of Rotterdam, and it gave me the weirdest happy feeling ever. I had the goofiest smile on my face. (I think I might scared of the passenger across me.) If this stranger would ask me how I would describe my city. I would say, creative. Because like a blank canvas, our city has started from zero, there’s art everywhere! Our skyline, architecture, the Markthal rooftop, trendy restaurants, street art, street style, multicultural influences and much more. A city that literally started from the bottom turned out to be one of the 52 places to visit according through the New York Times. So the other day on my way back home I came to the realization that I have never stopped loving my city, I just needed to be remained why I fell in love in the first place.

‘Not all those who wander are lost.’

  1. As long as you look upwards Rotterdam is a beautiful city, I always say, but you shouldn’t take a look in the streets or alleys. Just as you said, when I’m on the Maasboulevard I just love how the city skyline looks, but when I take a look at the streets just behind the shops at the Lijnbaan I’m always suprised how badly those ugly (and sometimes dirty) streets are hidden for the public eye. But actually that’s quite how life is: there is always that little something that you’d rather hide.
