I spent two days in Maastricht with my friend, it was great! Read on for some fancy sights, food, funky art and the city walls!

First stop after our 3 hour train ride + dropping off the bags at the hotel: Coffeelovers nr 1! (Near the "Hoge brug"). (If you have missed Coffeelovers nr 2, click here: Coffeelovers Dominicanen). We both ordered the same sandwich with cheese, tomato, bacon, chicken en lettuce.

We also found these coloured dogs near our hotel. We stayed in the Design Hotel, which was less than 5  minutes away from the train station. Great!

We had dinner at "Il Bacaro" (Bar e cucina), my fried ordered a chicken dish and I had the spaghetti bolognese, which was great. We finished with homemade dessert, lemon ice and chocolate mousse. Yum! Together with two drinks (water/soft drink) we paid € 30,-. It was a small place to eat but the atmosphere was really nice. Will go again!

After the dinner we went to the cinema to watch Dracula Untold. We found some more cute shops and a guy who looks like he's sitting on a vespa due to the reflection in the window.

We ended our afternoon with a walk alongside (and up) the old city walls and the Hellgate of Maastricht. The weather was also great these two days, as we only had some rain during the first night.

Have you ever visited Maastricht?

    I hope he thought I was taking a picture of the Vespa, not of him!
