Lynn Houghton’s Utrecht adventure
We sent journalist Lynn Houghton on a Stena Line trip to Utrecht, which she described as “Amsterdam without the crowds of tourists, the drugs, the rubbish or obvious red-light district. In other words, it has the canals, the Dutch and the cheese but everything is clean and fresh belying its age.”
