Yesterday we went on a surprise outing to Utrecht!
We visited one of my favorite spots:
The small cloister garden near the Dom tower.
I love this building with its stone ornaments and gargoyles.
I tried to see how I'd do as a gargoyle.
Not bad, I think.
Next we went to the Catherijne Convent museum where there was a exhibition about Icons
It was really interesting. They even showed all the stages in painting an Icon.
Me enjoying the sun shining through a window.
I got to pick a small souvenir for myself and I chose this 'bidprentje' (In memoriam card?) which I think is very beautiful. It depicts Saint Mechtilde.
Then it was time for food and a nice cold beer.
After that we did some shopping and finally we went to a restaurant next to one of the canals for:
More yummy food: papadums.
And more beer while enjoying the last bit of sun.
And then it was time to return home after a really cool day out.
