Maastricht is in the south-east of Netherlands, capital of the region of Limburg, in a tiny stretch of land between Belgium and Germany. Why visit it? We have two reasons not necessarily powerful: one, because this way we can add a new country to our trip, and two, because when Albert went to Riga a couple of months ago, he met a guy from here, and he spoke very good about it. We expect that he is not going to be just a great patriot! The city, for the little knowledge that we have acquired these last times, besides being known for be the place where the treaty of the same name was signed, and which marked the foundation of the European Union as we know it today, seems to be quite interesting.
Liège, already in Belgium, is not so far away from Maastricht. The reason we are going here is basically because it is on the way and, since we are here, we will take the chance to purchase some lovely belgian chocolate, idea that Tiffany thinks is just gorgeous. Liège is also the capital of the Wallonia region, and a eminently industrial city, and, at least in the pictures, looks like being an absolute belgian city.
Finally, to relax the day after the city stress, we will go to Spa, the little town famous for its thermal waters, which gives the name to this many relaxation centres that fashionable lately.
By the way, what we surely will have to do, when visiting those cities, is to find a nice and secure parking for the car!
