We are homesick most for the places we have never known.”- Carson McCullers


A big thank you to my good friend Katelijne for letting my use this picture of hers!

I am lucky enough to be able to make trips regularly.  I am lucky enough to live in a place from where I can easily travel to fab destinations like Paris, Amsterdam, London… but that doesn’t mean that I can go wherever I go, whenever I want to… I wish!  Read more about this quote!

Holland: Utrecht

Oude Gracht with a view of the Dom.

We like going to the Netherlands for day trips or weekend get aways. There are really beautiful little towns and villages and a trip to our neighbouring country never disappoints us !

This time we went to Utrecht. We parked at P&R Westraven and took the tram to the city centre. If you come by car, this is, in my opinion, the best way to get into town as the P&R is easy accessible and the car park plus tram tickets for up to 5 people only costs you 5 EUR !

The tram dropped us off at the station… now there we had some difficulties finding the fastest way to the old part of town as there are extensive road and construction works ! But after some time we found our way and soon we were strolling around the beautiful city centre. Read more about our daytrip to Utrecht!
