As the day was still early, Abah suggested we toured what we can of Rotterdam. After literally groping in the dark streets of Rotterdam, we found the cubic houses the city is famous for! Till today, we still wonder how the rooms are arranged in the cubes!
3rd day...we toured bits of The Hague. Nice and cozy. We stopped by the International Court of Justice. By stopping by I mean loitering at the front gate, taking loads of pictures! We had lunch in the city centre before setting of for Amsterdam.
Now...Amsterdam is happening!! Macam-macam ada...we started with the canal cruise..the short cut way of seeing as much of Amsterdam as we can! The buildings are beautiful!
Sebelum ke Antwerp, we stopped by a small town called Delft. A place famous for the Dutch blue porcelaine...tapi mahal laaa..so after listening to explanations as to how the make the plates and stuff and menjamu mata at the souvenirs shops, we left for Antwerp.
Antwerp was a good destination. It has a beautiful square...too bad we couldn't spend that much time as we had to hurry to Brussels.
5th day was spent at the much recommended town of Brugge. Beautiful is the best word to describe the town...Am so in love with the whole idea of Brugge...the canals, the square, the fancy biscuits and especially with the lace and tapestry shops! yum yum!!
Another legend goes like this: In the 14th century, Brussels was under siege by a foreign power. The city had held their ground for quite some time. The attackers had thought of a plan to place explosive charges at the city walls. A little boy named Juliaanske from Brussels happened to be spying on them as they were preparing. He urinated on the burning fuse and thus saved the city.
