This statue called “Kumica Barica” is of a peasant woman, carrying her wares - to Dolac, the famous farmers' market located in Gornji Grad - Medveščak district in Zagreb, Croatia. 🧺

Jup, that’s the name of this area in Rotterdam. That’s pretty cool right?
Haven means harbor btw. .
Rotterdam used to have the biggest port of the world. I really like what that has done to the culture; for example we have quite big representation of Chinese folks and their lovely authentic cuisine. 🥡🙌
Also there are lots of old warehouses, that are now renovated into luxurious lofts ...yes, Rotterdam is booming! .
There is a downside to all of this development. Polarization.
Folks complaining about the tourists and investors from Amsterdam buying all the cheap houses, upgrade and style them and cell them to -so I heard- others from Amsterdam.
Don’t get me wrong, I too was born in #020 , I don’t care about soccer and not judging just observing.
I wouldn’t wanna live in an overpriced theme park either; so I get it! From both sides 😌 .
Anyway, with this non-food pic I just wanted to show of Rotterdam’s beauty. I LOVE walking around and soak up all the (raw) beauty, the little things and moments. (And of course eat+cook, but you might know by now.)
Sunsets are a bit of a cliche, but walking past @coolhavenrotterdam when it looks like this is enchanting. .
Ps if you are one of those folks who can afford; they are building apartments -as we speak- with this view 😜😂 (Só not sponsored. .)

Today we left the campsite where we spent our first two nights. We used the space to relax, de-winterize the van, organize the clutter we packed in last minute, and familiarize ourselves with our new home. The past six months (and even more so the past six weeks) have been filled with stress, both positive and negative, as we prepared for our new life. We made our way into Dallas today and felt the sunshine for the first time since Sunday. It's been gloomy and cold, cooping us up a bit. A little sunshine, slightly warmer temps (high 50's), and the energy of the city was just what I needed. We walked around Uptown Dallas and felt the comfort that we used to feel as we frequently walked Uptown Minneapolis. While the campsites will be used for relaxation and dumping and filling water tank supplies, the cities will be scratching my travel itch. The people, the energy, and the culture is what I crave to experience.
