Above a Giant Port City on a Tiny Airplane
Rotterdam in the Netherlands isn't usually a city over which you fly in a plane. If you arrive, you'll come into Rotterdam-The Hague International Airport, or via train into Rotterdam Centraal Station. But...BUT if you happen to fly out Hamburg, Germany and to a place like London, and the sky is clear and you've got a window seat, keep watch for the distinctive huge maritime city.
While it's very cool to see the layout of this legendary port from the above, we think it's even cooler that leaving from Hamburg (called "The Gateway to the World"), means having a chance at flying over Rotterdam at all, as it's called "The Gateway to Europe."
Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any superhuge supertankers in port on the way we snapped this, but hats off to the pilot for announcing the view out the window!
