I live in The Netherlands - and we, as Dutch people, have many lovely places to visit - Amsterdam, Utrecht and Den Haag, for instance. I visited Utrecht and I took my camera with me - so I could take a few snapshots. The weather was lovely and so was my company, which resulted in a beautiful and very relaxing day.
As you can see, it wasn't much of a shopping day: it was more a photography & coffee kind of day (but those are my favourite kind of days). If you have ever been to a city with canals (Amsterdam, Utrecht..) you know how much fun it is to sit by the water with a cup of tea, and just enjoy the fact that you have the opportunity to do so.
