Trier Eats

24 09 2017

From my day trip to Trier, Germany on one August day.

Wasn’t planning to but how can I pass a soft-serve?!

Local sparkling wine @ a pop-up shop in the middle of the main square. Wine manufacturers apparently take turns setting up shop throughout the year. All wines extremely reasonably priced.

Fast forward to the end of the day in Trier. Before returning to Luxembourg City, needed properly to try some local wines. This was a very good choice.

The restaurant had two separate rooms and entrances. This looked more like the front and was much more modern.  I was in the “back” room.

Yet More of Luxembourg City

The second morning in Luxembourg City; another beautiful day.

And time for lunch.

And some supermarket browsing.





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 😦

 





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.





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.





Leaving on a Jet Plane

12 08 2017

Offices closed for the coming week and getting away.

Today’s destination:  Luxembourg

 





One Night in Nice

10 08 2017

After enjoying the day in Grasse, I hopped on a local bus to reach my final destination of my recent trip in France, an airport hotel next to the Nice Airport.

My ride

The view from my hotel room. The ocean, an airfield and palm trees.  OK for an airport hotel!

The next morning at the airport. This is new. Maybe set up after the terror attack in Nice almost a year before?  A similar one is apparently set up on the Promenade where it happened.

Breakfast in the airport lounge.

My ride to Paris

Bye bye France ♡
