2019 was an interesting one for me. An unforeseen (not that they’re ever foreseen) broken foot meant I didn’t get to travel as much as I’d have liked this year, but hopefully next year I’ll be back ticking off my bucketlist with a vengeance. Despite this, I did manage to take a dream trip to Mexico and return to a couple of my favourite European cities for the first time! So without further ado here’s a look back at where I went this year…
Rotterdam is a city that took me so much by surprise! I was there a couple of weekends ago because it was the destination for the Traverse 2018 conference and otherwise I doubt it would have been somewhere that would have ever been high on my list of places to visit. However, Rotterdam is an amazingly cool ultra-modern city with lots more to do than you would initially imagine and a relaxed friendly vibe. It offers a startling alternative to the ever-popular Amsterdam and I reckon it is about the hit the big time!
Like many members of the travel blogging community I found myself in Rotterdam in the Netherlands last weekend for the Traverse 2018 conference. Although I had made almost no plans about what to see prior to my trip I spotted a sign about the Kinderdijk Windmills down by the waterfront and decided to try and fit in a visit on my last morning in the city.
