    Luxembourg

    June 28 in Luxembourg

    Retraced my train steps a bit this morning to return to Koblenz and spotted a few more Rhine castles en route. Changed here for another train to take me down the lovely Moselle Valley. Calmer with river traffic than the Rhine, this was another beautiful trip in the morning sunshine, with vineyards lining the rolling banks of the river. I remember staying at a B&B here with Mum and Dad. Dad was in his element sitting in the garden facing the Moselle with a glass of wine made on the premises. As usual, I was keen to push on and he said ‘just you go ahead, you can pick me up here on the way back’.

    Visiting this area reminded me of another place we stayed at on our German trip. It was getting late and we stopped at the first ‘Zimmer Frei’ (rooms vacant) sign we could see. It was a small hotel unfortunately named Hotel F…k. In the morning I asked my Dad if the hotel had lived up to its name and he replied with a big grin ‘oh yes’. Mum just smiled and shook her head and said ‘see that man!’

    We passed through Trier, the oldest city in Germany, and soon arrived at the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. One of the smallest sovereign states in Europe, it came across as a charming place, easy to walk about and see the main sights. I visited the vast underground system of passages and galleries known as the casemates which are one of the major tourist attractions. Then had a lovely walk along the Corniche - nicknamed the most beautiful balcony in Europe. Had a nice local Luxembourg dish for dinner - some kind of boiled ham with roast potatoes and broad beans. I had forgotten how much I like broad beans. And all washed down with a refreshing Luxembourg white wine - delish!

    Visiting old friends

    October 16, 2016 in Luxembourg

    Uno a veces pasa años sin saber o ver ciertas personas, por eso cuando planee el viaje uno de los primeros en saber fue Leo, así que programamos para pasar unos días en su casa, días que invertí en conocer la vida tradicional de una persona común que trabaja y vive acá, la vida de roommates a la que siempre me había rehusado y que ahora me parece tan tentativa, viajar es romper los esquemas que uno mismo se construye a veces basado en malas experiencias y otras veces por desconocimiento e incapacidad de atreverse a cosas nuevas.Read more

    Luxemburg, Gare

    January 2, 2017 in Luxembourg

    Nach 5 Stunden Fahrt über Kaiserslautern und Trier sind wir endlich am Bahnhof in Luxemburg angekommen. Etwas müde, extrem hungrig, aber glücklich machten wir uns auf die Suche nach ESSEN, da wir ziemlich erfolglos waren und nicht wie erhofft eine kleine Pommesbude fanden, sind wir in das nächst Beste Fast Food Restaurant gegangen Quick (wirbt mit qualitaty burgers). Falls ihr so einen Laden jemals seht macht nen sehr großen Bogen drum. Mehr als ein paar Pommes und für mich einen Cheeseburger gab's dann auch nicht.
    Auf dem Weg zum Hotel, dass am Park belle vue liegt, sahen wir dann den ersten Teil von der extremen Weihnachtsbeleuchtung, die in der kompletten Stadt aufgebaut ist. Sogar die Baukräne waren geschmückt.
