GS sunny days

P1160034It’s that time of the year. The time in which the BMW GS1200 stays quiet in the garage and goes to sleep.

Our Kaugummi motorbike quite enjoyed the trips to The Netherlands in the Spring. Our latest trip was along the Maas river, where there are interesting sandwiches – very bio indeed – to taste in local farms…

Now the coats and hats are back, and the bike’s battery is in the cellar…

Towards Kop van Zuid

P1140299

Almost Mediterranean, isn’t it? then we move to the islands!

P1140350Looks like the development of the former customs island started in the 90s…P1140361A frontal and side view of the KPN building, by Renzo Piano…and the expansive De Rotterdam by Rem Koolhaas.

Red, cantilevered apple

P1140143

Cantilevered buildings are Rotterdam’s signature. Both big Unilever’s headquarters have a suspended attitude. And also Red Apple, on the former apples quay, plays with the volumes. This shows that the nHow in Osthafen in Berlin is nothing new…

Orange

P1140159We had expected plenty of rain in Rotterdam over Easter, but in the end the worst we got was grey sky on our first day, and some chilly wind.

P1140168

Bright colors provided some distraction from the gray hues dominating on the Coolsingel and Witte.

P1140088Even if King’s Day is still far away, I get somewhat always attracted by orangey hues when in the Netherlands. And I am sure there will be sun ahead….P1140300
