Best cruises are free ๐Ÿ˜ณโ›ด...said no one ever๐Ÿ˜‚But there is one in London that is free and has pretty cool skyline views๐Ÿ˜‰ No much of a cruise, more like a ferry, a car,bike and passenger ferry to be exact๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿš™โ›ดIt only get you across the river between Silvertown and Woolwich and the ride takes barely 5min but the symmetrical view of #CanaryWharf you get in the middle of the crossing is worth the experience...at least in my opinion ๐Ÿ˜

Just a usual day out with the kids๐Ÿ˜€Go to London, find a playground, do a rooftop, grab something to eat ... ๐Ÿ˜ณwait, what ? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Had a unique chance to visit #BarrierPoint in Silvertown and I was always fascinated by the exterior of this building yet when I found out it has a residents rooftop terrace with 360 views that just made my day ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ“ธ You can check the replay from a live story I did there to see the view from up there in all directions๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Rooftop bars and the skyline๐Ÿธ๐ŸŒ‡
Currently Canary Wharf area has two of the finest rooftop bars in London - @tompkinsandattic where this photo was taken from and @bokanlondon at the top of the Novotel in the photo. Both very cool, quite different vibes in each, yet both well recommended to visit๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Word on the roofs is ๐Ÿ˜‚...that at least two new super high rooftop bars might be coming soon to the neighbourhood๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ‘๐ŸปI say the more, the merrier๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿธ

So my #TravelTuesday inspiration comes from the recent trip to Rotterdam and the view from the terrace of the super cool cantilever events space at the top of Inntel Hotel just east side of the iconic #ErasmusBridge . Wish I shot this at night, but glad at least I got to go there at daytime. ๐Ÿ“ธ Nikon D5 with 19mm PC lens ๐Ÿ”ญ #LoveRotterdam ๐Ÿ˜ #rotterdamrooftopsmeet ๐Ÿขโฌ†๏ธ
