Yesterday we went on a trip to Utrecht.
First we had to take a bus and a train ride. Luckily I brought my new Zombie book along.
Here I am at the Dom tower in Utrecht.
The Dom tower is the most famous building in Utrecht. It used to be part of a church, but during a big storm a large part of the church collapsed and from then on the tower wasn't connected to the church anymore.
On the Dom square I saw this statue of a count.
I also spotted a doorway to a small courtyard.
It had a carving of Saint Maarten on it.
And here I am in the courtyard.
This is the cloister garden of the Dom Church.
In the middle of the garden there was a small fountain.
It had gargoyles on it!
At the far side of the garden you could see the Dom tower.
After our visit to the cloister garden we did some shopping and then stopped for a nice hot drink before exploring Utrech some more.
I saw a chameleon and a frog.
And at another church I spotted a pineapple statue.
Utrecht is a very cool city I think.
It has many beautiful canals.
When dusk set in we decided to find a restaurant to get something to eat.
We had a table at the window with a view on the entrance of the restaurant.
Here I am relaxing with a nice glass of beer after a long, but fun day of shopping and sightseeing.
When we left the restaurant there were colored lights under the bridges over the canals. Very beautiful! A perfect ending to a great day out.
