Lunching in Luxembourg City

22 08 2017

I had not decided where to get lunch on my first day out in Luxembourg City which is not what I normally do on my holiday trips.  I did want something traditionally Luxembourg in terms of food and drinks.  I found the perfect restaurant on one of the main squares, the Place d’Armes, housed in a hotel.

Trying out a local bubbly

Beautiful

Looking out to the Dicks-Lentz Monument

A nice vibe at lunch time

Great bread

My homemade sausage and mash. The sausage was traditional I was told.

Strawberry sorbet? I forgot as it wasn’t great 😦

 





Walking in Luxembourg City: in the Old Town

The first real day I was in Luxembourg was a brilliantly sunny day.  Here are some shots from my walk in the Old Town in the morning prior to lunch (how my clock works around meal hours).

 

 





Walking in Luxembourg City: From Gare to the Old Town and Back

19 08 2017

The first morning in Luxembourg City, after breakfast, on my way to the main tourist attraction of inside the old city fortress, it was a nice walk through rather empty streets and roads, looking at mostly art deco buildings.

And going back.





Window Wining in Luxembourg City

Not much time during my short trip to update my blog so here I go with just one somewhat of a timely photo I took the other day in Luxembourg City.

I will take the Sauvignon Blanc, please.





A Walk, Breakfast & to Supermarket! in the Bonnevoie Neighborhood

15 08 2017

The neighborhood of Luxembourg City I am staying in is called Bonnevoie just southeast of the central station.  The morning after I arrived, I went out in search of breakfast and grocery.

Empty streets everywhere. Sunday morning it was but I believe it has more to do with the very small population of the city.

Where I was planning to get breakfast. Closed for the summer of course.

Very good pain au chocolat. The rhubarb quiche was unexpectedly too sweet.

Off to the local supermarket, Cactus.

Luxembourg wines

And bubblies

On the way back along a different route.





Apartment Life in Luxembourg

14 08 2017

After arrival at the Luxembourg Airport, I took a local bus to take me to the central train station in Luxembourg City.

From the station, it was a short walk to my apartment, a nice spacious two-bedroom on the top floor of an older building with no elevator.

Nice and modern bathroom.

The kitchen and the dining area.

Between Tokyo, Amsterdam, and Luxembourg

13 08 2017

I don’t often write about my flying experience apart from being in airports but my flight between Tokyo Narita and Amsterdam Schiphol yesterday was serving wines with special labels (the wines were OK) so I had asked to take pictures of all of them (and tried all of them).

A collection of great Dutch painters.

And at Schiphol.

Light drizzle in Luxembourg but not too cold.
