Luxembourg, why not?!
The tiny country of Luxembourg (look, it really is tiny!) was in celebration mode over the weekend with a royal wedding. It’s not a country that you see in the news very often, and it is probably not high up on any list of Europe “must-see” places (aside from if you are keen to do a micro-states-of-Europe tour, which we are, one day). However, it was where we found ourselves for Easter this year, as much a result of opportunity as of design. Luxembourg turned out to be an absolute treat, a place we were both so glad to have visited and which we have since been recommending excitedly to European friends as a fun weekend destination, and encouraging antipodean friends to consider adding to their itinerary if they ever find themselves in Europe. I’ve already written about Luxembourg’s wonderful MUDAM on a previous occasion (or two), but this week, spurred on by reading about Luxembourg in the newspaper over the weekend, we are dedicating a few posts to some of the other wonderful things about this little place. For today, here’s another of our favourite photos of the stunning and formidable city walls (which PJD wrote about earlier this week).
The landscape – manmade and natural – in Luxembourg really is quite astounding. So, I hope you continue to enjoy getting a little Luxembourgish with us this week…
