Shopping in Maastricht


Last weekend my aunt and I went to Belgium to visit friends I hadn't seen in two years or so. I have been knowing them almost all my life and to me they're just like family. Our yearly meetings have become one of the nicest traditions in my life and it's always a pleasure catching up on their lives.
As usually we arrived at our friends' house on Saturday noon and after lunch we went to Maastricht (which is in the Netherlands but not far away from where our friends live). I think that Maastricht is such a wonderful city, it's among my top 5 favourite cities ever, and it tends to remind me of London a little bit. The shopping and eating possibilities are really huge (I can especially recommend V&D and Pinky) and I love looking at the many typically Dutch buildings.
On Saturday evening we went bowling and on Sunday we visited the open-air museum in Bokrijk. After a yummy lunch it was time to say goodbye and I really can't wait to see our friends again in summer.





















What have you guys been up to this weekend? Who of you has been in Maastricht before? The shopping haul will be up on the blog this week!

  14. Hallo liebe Carmen,
    tolle Fotos hast du da geschossen - da hab ich gleich auch Lust, nach Maastricht zu fahren. Da war ich bisher noch nicht, aber anscheinend habe ich da echt was verpasst! Und sooo weit ist das ja von hier aus auch nicht mehr, meinst du, ein Tagestrip lohnt sich oder sollte man lieber übernachten?
    Liebste Grüße
    Julia
