Hi, all,

I too enjoyed visiting Maastricht, and like the idea of not always going 
to the same large places repeatedly, and don't mind a brief (2-hour or 
less) train ride after a flight.

That said, I would appreciate future locations be less 'pinned', i.e., 
where at least some alternatives (for lunch, [brewed] coffee, or just to 
take a break) were available within a reasonably brief walk.

This is less an issue with city size than with venue location within the 
city. IMO, Hiroshima, Stockholm, Anaheim, and Vancouver had this, but 
Maastricht and Dublin's venues (NOT the cities) made the week more 
difficult than it needed to be.

Joe
