Last month, we took a weekend trip to Luxembourg to celebrate our anniversary and new status as empty-nesters. Since it shares a border with Germany, it was just a short drive.
I snapped a few photos of the city to share…but I wouldn’t classify them as an actual tour guide as we spent more time eating and drinking than anything else. I actually think that’s a perfect vacation, by the way.
Oh, and Harley got to go along. He had a wonderful trip; Europe is so dog-friendly (except for finding a patch of grass to take care of business).
The altstadt (or old city) is within a wall and has lots of great shopping, open-air markets, and people watching.
There was a weekend flohmarkt in one of the squares and I found this tiny little silver cup for only 5€:
We didn’t stop at Ladurée here, but did when we went to Zurich. They have the prettiest decor.
We stopped for lunch at Urban Bar and I had a delicious salmon poke bowl.
After lunch we strolled around some more; as you can see it was a perfect day to be out and about.
They were getting ready for a wedding in this little church; I loved how they were using mounds of baby’s breath so snapped a few photos to share:
We stayed at the Hotel Perrin, a lovely family owned place near the main train station. They had an excellent breakfast available and met Harley with treats and pets, which were very much appreciated. The desk staff was wonderful. Our room was small (perhaps I should say, European-sized) but more than adequate, and just next door was Madame Jeanette, where I had this delicious pisco sour:
Poland is on the calendar next; I’ll be sure to share those photos soon. In the meantime, thanks for stopping by!
