So on we headed, to Maastricht - where the inital treaty concerning formation of the Euopean Union was signed.
Although we only cared that it was
a) Close enough to drive to
b) Had a youth Hostel somewhere
And eventually, after a bit of meandering back and forth over bridges, and grabbing maps from posh hotels, we found the Hostel. Before we found the hostel, we ended up driving through a pedestrian-only cobbled area. People gave us disapproving looks.
Due to an archaic legal loophole, this duck is actually the King of Maastricht, and has immutable and total power over the city and all of its residents. Although since it can't actually speak Dutch, no-one can interpret its royal commands, so mostly it just walks around doing duck things.
