it's all going too fast. Next week we'll be going back to Australia and I'm really not ready for it, mostly because the weather has changed and the temperature is about 26 degrees now...yay!
We've done lots of sight seeing and spent the week in Limburg, which is our most southern province. It's the only province that has hills and everything looks super cute. We visited its capital city Maastricht, which is now at the top of my lists. I had never been to Limburg or Maastricht and I have to say that it is way more beautiful than Amsterdam...even Marcel says so. Here you find a true Dutch city without all the tourists and without all the yukkie coffee-shops.
I'll leave you with some photos.
