Travel Blogs from Utrecht

... we hopped on a city bound train. And stayed on the city bound train until it got to the end of its line and went back to where we had just come from, because no one was actually paying attention. (In the defence of the group leaders, it was only two stops) finally we made it to trouw. Which is apparently an Amsterdam institution. It is a big old printing press with a few different dance floors, a full restaurant and a bowling alley. It was pretty ...

Living like the locals

A travel blog entry by caitlinnelson


... we caught the bus home and then talked with Rianne’s housemates Lotte and Jantien. We found it very amusing at that hour that Dutch people use the word ‘hoor’ (pronounced like something rude) for ‘eh/aye’, and heard many funny stories about how that’s got people into trouble overseas.

The train was a double-decker and the top floor smelt like cigarettes. Why do trains and stations always smell that way? They seem to, even if smoking has ...

There is so much commotion around, people laughing, talking, cheers-ing one another, and the decor is eclectic. There are statues of Mannequin ****, old beer tin signs, flags, etc. This is lively place where the locals surely go after work, and did I mention the beer was sooooo good?
