When an opening became available to stay in the Cube House hotel in Rotterdam, I knew I had to jump at the opportunity. Fortunately, living in Belgium, Rotterdam is just a quick 1 hour drive away, leaving plenty of time to discover the second largest cityof the Netherlands (and largest port of Europe!). I used to work for a news station, producinga local show and also writing news packages for the weekly broadcast. This story felt like a nice jump back in time and a way to sharpen my writing and researching skills as well.
