A Postcard from Utrecht, Nederlands - 10th June 2018

It's the day after Martin's epic 50th birthday at the Dorpshuis in Asperen, and Nosher, Hamish and another dude from the New Milton massive are both heading back to Schipol airport to catch various flights back to the UK. Martin drops us off at Geldermalsen station, and as there's plenty of time, Nosher and Hamish decide to stop off on the way to explore the city of Utrecht
