N for ….


I wanted to avoid the clichés of windmills, tulips and clogs … and Maastricht is just about as far from them … and everything else in the Netherlands ,,, as possible.


‘Did you ever go to a place … Norway, I think it was called? That was one of mine! Won a prize, you know. Lovely crinkly edges’

(The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)


  1. I’ve never been to Maastricht and your ‘Related Posts’ took me to Rails to Maastricht which I enjoyed. Did you enjoy the concert?

    • We’ve been to André Rieu concerts in Leeds, Birmingham and London … but, best of all were the two occasions we attended concerts in his home town of Maastricht. (The first time we went, we met on of his sons in an art gallery there!)

      We found later that we could have got there much cheaper if we’d got off the train at Liege, and just walked a short distance to catch a bus to Maastricht.

      For what it’s worth, it would even repay a visit when there isn’t a concert on.

      • Thanks for that information, especially the bit about getting off at Liege and walking to the bus. Very useful for when I plan a trip there – whenever that will be. I get lower in spirits with each day’s passing.
