We’re now parked up just north of Maastricht, right on the canal at Rekem, where you can use the cycle path to go right into the town centre. This will be our second night and the cycle path is in constant use by the huge stream of cyclists as it seems everyone here has a bike.
This photo was taken in Maastricht centre, next to the market place. We stumbled upon the Friday market, with the many fried fish stalls selling lightly battered fish with a variety of scummy sauces to dip it into. At 3.50€ it made a great snack.
Following our way into the old town we discovered a lovely place, with lots of boutique shops and cobbled streets full of people but not pretentious or too touristy. I loved seeing the many small vehicles that had been transformed into food stalls and bars, and would love a baglet van!!
We also found the world’s best cookshop, and had free samples of very expensive chocolate so Bruce sang the demo lady a song…
Then we walked around, enjoying the scenes round the town, full of cafe culture and flowers and sunshine.
Through a very huge iron door we found this bookshop inside an old church.
And this window display made me smile. ..
So I am now planning our Sunday, which will begin with a move about 19km north a then our Sunday traditional car boot sales start- we hope to get in 4 tomorrow -stocking up on bling for the baglet’s as I have had an increase in the order from my French distributor, so need to up production as soon as I get home!
