Wilhelmina Tower Vaalserberg Netherlands (1)

One of the great things of living in Maastricht down in the southern Dutch region of Limburg is that it’s very close to the border with Belgium and Germany. There is one area in Vaals, where you can stand on the exact point where the three countries supposedly meet. If you’re looking for grand panoramic scenic views of […]

A GoGo Valkenburg Netherlands (7)

One of the last things you might expect to find in the very flat Netherlands is a chairlift or cable car. In most of the Netherlands, there are no hills, but on the southern province of Limburg, you’ll start to see a hill here or there, and in Valkenburg, not too far away from Maastricht, […]

Maastricht carnaval 2016 Netherlands (11)

I never expected the little town of Maastricht at the southern tip of the Netherlands to be this lively, but even during the gloomy cold winter time there’s lots going on surrounding the carnival. Maastricht proclaims itself to the the carnival capital of the world, no less. You might think that’s a bit overdoing it, […]

Maastricht Netherlands (15)

Maastricht is a small town in the southern Limburg province of the Netherlands on the border with Belgium and very close to Germany. In my previous visits to the Netherlands it was a bit far off my travel route and I honestly haven’t heard much about it as a travel destination. But, academia led me […]
