Quick guide to Luxembourg

Day 1 & 2 of 365days2play’s Honeymoon in Luxembourg, Germany & France

Greetings everyone! I’m currently touring Europe with the Partner for our Honeymoon. Specifically, we will be travelling mostly in France, with 2 days spent in Luxembourg and one lovely day in Germany. Even though we are spending only 1 official day in Germany, the strange thing is that because we will be doing some travelling in the Alsace region of France, it still feels like we are in Germany! The architecture of the buildings here are very German, as this place was under German rule for many years.

I’m currently in Germany as I write this, and we have already covered Luxembourg and Strasbourg. Luxembourg is a lovely country, and very small just like Singapore. Its population is just over 500k, and I was told that 150k people travel into Luxembourg on a daily basis just for work!

What amazes me the most is that citizens of Luxembourg are required to learn 3 languages, ie French, German and Luxembourgish. And we complain about having to learn Mandarin… In fact, in my 4 days in Europe so far, all the people I have met know at least a bit of English. I was hoping to be able to use my extremely limited French and German vocabulary, but because the people I have had to speak to have a better command of English (even if it is very bad), than my command of French and German, that it’s just more efficient to speak in English.

Anyway, here are some quick pictures of Luxembourg City. Will try to write more in the next few days while the holiday mood is still strong! Oh one more thing, I would like to give a shout out to Small Luxury Hotels of the World as they are sponsoring my stay in Europe! Smile Smile
