The Netherlands

The other day, I ventured over to #Utrecht, a city in the middle of the Netherlands and it is only a 38 minutes journey from my home in #Rotterdam. I have passed through the city several times before, by car or on my bike, but never have I really stopped to take a look around. Now was the chance for me to take look and Visit Utrecht.

The city reminded me a little of #Amsterdam with an interesting network of city #canals, quaint cafes and cobbled streets.

Bikes are found all around, with #cyclists taking to the streets to carry out there regular daily journey. The city is also home to the largest #cycle park in the world. There is room for a huge number of bikes and is well worth a good look, or even park your own #bike. Bicycle Parking at its best!

The Central Station has undergone a significant redevelopment of late, leaving a pretty amazing space. It is modern, light and very impressive on the eye. Eye-catching it is!

Adjacent to the Station, is a large and modern Shopping Center. Now, I am not particularly 'a shopper', but again it is an impressive urban space and designed beautifully.

Thanks for viewing my Thoughts and Stories about Utrecht. I found it to be a nice city a good mix of old and new. It is well worth a visit, if you are passing. You can find out more about me here, on my website www.garethmate.com
