a short trip

back home!


it was a relatively short business trip...
spent 3 days in utrecht

but it was long enough for me to miss home terribly...

i kept looking at photos of little bb and brownie and sugar in my phone all the time.

in between my home-sick-ness and work,

i did quite enjoy my time at the city (shall i feel guilty?)...

it's a serene, relaxing and preppy place....

fresh air,
lots of trees and flowers,
very very few tall buildings,
extremely nice and friendly people (they smile at strangers),
side walk cafes,
the best coffee place (more about this later),
more bicycles than cars,
little streets filled with surprises here and there....

and it made me felt like i am back in my college days again....














the hotel....








the dome tower...










little streets near the canal called Oudegracht....

You were in the country, haha?! If you ever make it to Amsterdam, let me know. And I will show you my favorite coffee place here, ok;)

I'm glad to hear you were home again with your family soon. It must be tough leaving a small kid behind. But it does look like you had a nice time in Utrecht too though:)
