God behoede mij voor mijn vrienden, mijn vijenden neem ik zelf voor mijn rekening

i did not expect to be battling with this incredible urge to break into a devastatingly massive shopping spree at – of all places – utrecht. i expected history, yes. i expected interesting architecture, yes. some culture, check. but shopping?!

but that is what hit me. as i walk through utrecht centraal station, shops. out of the station complex, shops. all around the domtoren, shops. my visit to utrecht is defined by this pretty impressive window shopping experience. plus, this close to christmas, all the sales are on full swing.

at one point, i had to park myself at a cafe, and just watch all this shopping activity while being comforted by a mug of hot chocolate and a slice of cheesecake.

it is not a bad experience. but now i know where to go to indulge in a shopping calling. hehe.
