We arrived in Amsterdam but right away we traveled from Schiphol to Rotterdam by train. The ticket was 11,90 EUR / person.

Rotterdam is a city in South Holland, the Netherlands, located geographically within the Rhine–Meuse–Scheldt river delta at the North Sea.

Just opposite the Rotterdam Central Station we saw a nice cafeteria called Nationale-Nederlanden Douwe Egberts Café which we decided to visit during our trip since its Bond connection: Designing 007 – 50 Years of Bond Style Exhibition theme restaurant.

See more 007 style photos of the cafeteria here.

However, we took a taxi to our 5 star hotel in Rotterdam.

Later we started to walk towards address Museumpark, Westzeedijk 341, where the Kunsthal Rotterdam is. And there it was: 007 Exhibition: Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style! See our report of it here with lots of Bond related photos!

It took 2-3 hours to spend time with this great exhibition. After that we were hungry and found a restaurant near our hotel: Bar and Brasserie Water.

This was such a great day. Stay tuned for our next day: Amsterdam!
