Lives: In West with daughter (6) and son (5).

Why: ‘Because when the weather is good, we socialise with the neighbours on the pavement and plant facade gardens.’

Means of transport: Urban Arrow cargo bike. ‘Pram, beach stuff, groceries… Everything fits. Fully loaded to the Kralingse Plas.’

Which neighbourhood should I explore?

Question 1 of 6

Merwe-Vierhavens. With Vrijstaat de Weelde at its centre. A pleasant, hip place for free spirits where my children dig in the soil or play in an old bus or boat while I enjoy a cocktail or homemade lemonade with friends. The food is also delicious. Kumzits is open on Fridays and Saturdays. Middle Eastern cuisine with Lebanese and Israeli influences. Don’t expect a restaurant, it’s just snacks with cocktails. Awesome.
