Back in Utrecht

Gouden Kalf
I’m back!

After a gruelling trip back, which included a missed flight in London and what seems to be an elbow injury and too many bruises to count, I finally made it back to Utrecht yesterday. I saw the Domtoren on the taxi ride home and managed to get a quick shot of the Gouden Kalf (Golden Calf) before they take it down. It’s part of the decorations for the annual Nederland Film Festival, which I missed this year. I always get a photo of the kalf, though, so I was glad to not completely miss a year.

More NC photos and stories to come, interspersed with regular Utrecht content, but for now I’m cuddling the cats and the boyfriend and enjoying being able to walk everywhere.

    • We drove through a bit of your part of NC on our way to and from the mountains. It was nice to see a different landscape, but I’m also glad to be back home. Hopefully I’ll have more stories to share when I get over this cold I picked up on the flight back.

  1. Welcome back! I walked past the schouwburg last week and there was a red carpet event going on with tons of press. Didn’t recognize anybody, but I’m hopeless when it comes to Dutch celebs anyway πŸ™‚ It must be nice not to be dependent on a car anymore to get places. I would be totally stuck in the US, not having a drivers license πŸ™‚

    • If I’d been here for the festival this year, I might have gone to take some photos of one of the red-carpet events. I found out a bit about some Dutch celebs from doing that in the past. I took pictures of anyone who got a lot of attention from the journalists and then checked news sites the next day to actually find out who everyone was. πŸ˜‰

  2. Welcome back! Cuddling cats is usually at the top of my list when returning from a trip, too. =) Hope you enjoyed your time in the States!

    • Thanks! Cuddling cats is always the best, whether they like it or not! I did enjoy my time in the US, but I’m also glad to be back. I’m still happy with my choice to live here. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks! I think my travel ordeal is the reason I’m sick now. The person next to me on my eventual flight to Amsterdam was suspiciously sniffly. *shakes fist at Heathrow*
