Utrecht, Madrid | February 2011

Work again took me over across the pond, this time to Utrecht in the Netherlands and Madrid in Spain.

 

 

Utrecht

Utrecht is a town in the Netherlands, about 45 minutes from Amsterdam. A picturesque canal, nice variety of good restaurants, and LOTS and LOTS of bicycles.

Some are fancy...
...while others are utilitarian
Did I mention the bicycles?

Madrid

From Utrecht, it was a short hop over to Madrid. Stayed on the outskirts of the city close to the office, but after a few long days, we were able to take off early on Friday afternoon, go into the city, and explore a bit.
