{maastricht}


Last week I took a day off and we went shopping in Maastricht. Maastricht is a lovely city, the river Meuse flowing through it. It's rich history shown in abundance in every street and corner of the old town centre. Once a roman settlement named Mosa Trajectum, later occupied by the Spanish and the French. Especially the French influence is still very noticable today.

Maastricht is a great town to shop and sit on a terrace, sipping a cappucino and watch the world go by.

 The river Meuse is flowing through Maastricht. Maas (in Maastricht) means Meuse.

 Well ahum, we actually didn't sit on terrace and didn't sip a cappucino. 
Instead we went to the coffee bar of Douwe Egberts (a Dutch coffee brand) and had hot chocolat. Yummy!

 The Iittala shop. 
The Hermes shop, too expensive for me.


Take care,
