south provinces

anonymous asked:

Hi, I just went through your blog and it was mentioned once that Amsterdam and Rotterdam have beef with each other? Why is that? I'm Finnish, I don't know anything I'm sorry

North Holland: “Amsterdam was the biggest trading center of the world!”
South Holland: “Yeah, and Rotterdam is the biggest haven of Europe!”
Netherlands: “Stop it, both of you!”

((I’ll try to explain it as best as I can since I’m not from either province nor city. Both Amsterdam and Rotterdam are big haven ports in The Netherlands, the biggest ones in fact. Not only that, Amsterdam is the biggest city in North Holland, and Rotterdam is the biggest city in South Holland. The Holland provinces on their own are the most densely populated provinces in general already, so their cities are presenting an important role.

Rotterdam was bombed during WWII and had to rebuild its center to modern buildings, thanks to this it’s dubbed “ugly” for the historical buildings are gone. Amsterdam is incredibly touristic and always the first city that foreigners will go to, and thanks to that got kinda overrated. Rotterdam people are said to be rude and hooligans, Amsterdam people are said to be arrogant and snobby.

The beef between these two cities is really a debate of which one is better. The people that live in these two cities are quite fierce about it as well, the beef is very, very real and salted. Also, don’t say sorry for asking! I’m so happy you did! Thank you for asking me!  ))


Just over two months ago, I left Vanuatu after a year of island life. I’ve got an island count of 12 out of 83; not so bad. Classic Vanuatu memories: the weird noise that geckos make, the overpowering smell of pineapples in the market during pineapple season, having a tan (kind of) while being a redhead, the most beautiful and dramatic sunsets I’ve ever seen and getting up close with active volcanoes.

Here are some my favourite photos from beautiful Vanuatu.
