200 Posts in the Minutiae of Maastricht

As I sat down to write something today, I realized that the last post was actually number 200 for Maastricht Minutiae. How exciting! That’s 200 posts about living in Maastricht, traveling Europe, and generally coping with the madness that is being an expat. It’s been mostly good, occasionally bad, and always interesting living in Maastricht and making a life out of living in a country different from my own.

In honor of this milestone, I’ve pulled together 20 posts that draw you through the minutiae of our life in Maastricht.

Out of curiosity, I tried to look up if the number 200 holds any special meaning. According to several extremely questionable resources from Mr. Google, 200 represents an insufficient amount. There is so much more to say, so I can live with that. Keep watching for the next 200 posts. And be sure to follow me via RSS or Twitter so you don’t miss a thing.
