My regular readers know I’m always trying to encourage people to visit Utrecht, whether they live in the Netherlands or are just visiting. After all, it’s a gorgeous city with nearly 2000 years of history and a constant stream of cultural events. So it makes sense that Toerisme (Tourism) Utrecht and I should work together in some way to encourage people to visit. And that’s what we started doing today. Thanks to a conversation on Twitter, I had a meeting with them today at their offices on the Domplein and we started discussing ways to work together to make Utrecht a slightly less hidden gem.
After the meeting, having only gone a short distance, I had one of those great moments of synchronicity/serendipity. There, in an open window, was another flamingo in Utrecht! I’m not much for signs and portents, but it was hard not to feel like this was a good sign for how my blog and Utrecht will continue to work together!
