The one with a little trip to Utrecht

A couple of weeks ago I visited Utrecht with my mom. Our destination was Museum Catharijneconvent. The building where it is situated, is a medieval convent and it's amazing. The museum shows the past and present of christianity in the Netherlands. I was a bit afraid it would have been a bit dull. Boy, was I wrong! The way the art was presented, interactive with touchscreens and videos, made it all very interesting. We wandered around for a couple of hours, and before we knew it, the museum was closing its doors for the day. We definitely want to go back, and we'll make sure we'll be there early in the morning, so we have enough time to see everything. After being all cultural and things, we wandered around the city and did a bit of (window) shopping. I've found some interesting things, like Dora hanging around in a tree.


 


I hate having my picture taken, and I normally make sure that I get away when I see a camera. Today I made an exception.

    1. Yes it is! And so much better for my wallet than plain shopping.

  4. I love the pictures of the storefronts in the city... they have so much more character than most of the cities around here. Yay for making an exception! I like your top!

  7. Love the photos. I do like museums! The little girl heads at the bottom are hysterical!! I know what you mean about photos of yourself. I'm the same way. Whenever someone takes a picture of my I make them promise they won't post it on facebook!

    Although, you are adorable! You look just fine in the picture.
