Already 1/12th of the way through 2016?!? How did that happen so fast? So many plans, so little time seems to be the story of my life. :)

I have played around with these roundup type posts quite a few times in the past, but never stuck with it. I’m thinking that trying to post them monthly instead of weekly will work better for me. So here we are with the January edition. I figured since we live in Austria it would only be right to call it my favorite things!

Utrecht Travel Guide - Plan a perfect weekend in Utrecht, The Netherlands

Most people visiting The Netherlands go straight to Amsterdam and never look back. I understand why, it is pretty amazing, and one of my favorite cities in the world. But just a half hour south of Amsterdam, right in the middle of The Netherlands, is the cutest little university town of Utrecht. With a medieval city center, beautiful canals and plenty of museums, shops and restaurants, a stop in Utrecht is definitely worth your time!
