Going Local in Luxembourg

2 09 2017

I found Luxembourg wines to be very pleasant.  It’s all I had while being in the city with one exception which was a local beer.  I’ve already posted a couple of below and this isn’t everything but it’s where I have captured the wine labels.

Yet More of Luxembourg City

1 09 2017

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.





The Final Hours in Pudong, Shanghai

28 07 2017

The main purpose of my recent China trip was to attend an anime event that was being held in Shanghai.

And after all that was done, we had a big party for all involved.

This went on until after midnight.  Feeling still a little full the next morning, I went down for breakfast much later than normal as I had the whole morning free and did not plan to go out.

Sunday morning in Shanghai. Lots of ships going down the river.

And off to the airport.

Goodbye Shanghai until September.





Breakfasting in El Segundo and Onward to San Francisco

14 07 2017

It was great that during my recent business trip to the US, the day I was travelling from Los Angeles to San Francisco fell on a Sunday which allowed me to get together with a couple of high school friends living in the LA area to get some brunch together.  One of them even lives near LAX and her choice of venue in downtown El Segundo was perfect for me.

I was driven to LAX by one of my friends.  Took a Delta flight to SFO.

Arriving in San Francisco, taking the airtrain.

BART!





Spending the Day with Anna & Michel in LA

13 07 2017

During my recent brief visit to Los Angeles, I had made a point to see a friend or more a work associate who became a very good friend.  I had enough time on the Saturday I was there when Anna and her husband Michel made time for me to go out for lunch followed by an unplanned shopping expedition and a visit to their lovely home.
