Day 39 – 10th October 2013
Thorn – Maastricht
The Maas river is the border between Netherlands and Belgium. I decided to ride a bit on the Belgian side of the river just to be able to say that I was in Belgium.
The woman at the Tourist Office was very friendly and said that the signs for the bike routes were much better in Belgium.
And they were. But I had no time issues. It was only 12 am and I had 40 km to go.
It did not take me long to reach Maastricht where I met up with Lara and she showed me around.
We did a city walking tour.
The city has a lot of old and beautiful buildings. Some of them where old but on the inside very modern. One old church was converted into the coolest book store I have ever seen. After the tour we bought some typical Netherlands food like Vla and sprinkles.
And I also got myself the Netherlands flag and the logo of Maastricht as a sticker.
At last I showed Lara the pictures and videos from the tour.
Tomorrow is a big day since I want to bike all the way home and it will be a long ride.
It was more sightseeing than biking today.
Km today: 54.8km Time travelled: 3h 15min km total: 3223km
