It rolls around every year and if you’re anything like me, making plans is always last on my festive-season list. This year, I will be celebrating at home with Tom and a few other friends. A big mexican feast of a dinner and drinks followed by a (very jumpy) stroll around town taking in the fireworks and noise makers. I don’t think I will ever get used to those damn disorganised fireworks!

For those more adventurous and keen to party, almost every bar is hosting a party – you’re sure to find something that tickles your fancy. A number of venues have already sold out but you can still get the last minute tickets to the following parties.

Dutchie Laura lived in Utrecht for 10 years. And the Domcity has developed ever since. More and more coffee bars have popped up and there are a lot of places to grab a sandwich on the go or stay for work. Best of all, Utrecht has a wide variety in of restaurants. Laura’s favorite? Anything with sushi, pasta, Indian, vegetarian, burgers, fish, meat, classic French… she’s not picky at all!
