Back to My Summer Trip and to Reims, France

16 10 2017

I have a few more write-ups on my trip to Europe in August.  The stop after Luxembourg City and a day trip to Trier, Germany was Reims, France in the Champagne region.

My ride from Luxembourg City to Reims

Arriving at the Reims train station very close to my hotel.

Left my luggage at the hotel and wandered around.

And lunch!!

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.





From Luxembourg City, Luxembourg to Trier, Germany

10 09 2017

Luxembourg is such a small country that borders are very close which was one of the reasons why I decided to visit it and its capital so that I could visit Trier, Germany, a historic city with multiple World Heritage sites.

So I took a day out of my stay in Luxembourg City to visit Germany.

The night before my trip, went to get train tix for the next day.

The next morning, I took one of the trains that left around 9:30 am.

My ride

Arriving in Trier just after one hour journey





Churches in Luxembourg City

7 09 2017

I love visiting churches (Christian in this case) and just sitting there, taking it all in though I’m an atheist.

A few churches I visited during my stay in Luxembourg City this past summer.

Trinity Church, a Protestant church

St. Michael’s Church

A local, newish church. Not sure what it’s called!

The Notre-Dame Cathedral, all of below.





More of That Lovely Luxembourg City

Continuing with the walk in Luxembourg City.

There is a cute touristy train you can take to go around the hilly city.

There is an elevator that takes you from the lower end of the city to the top end of it.

Love it.





Chillin’ Out in Luxembourg City

28 08 2017

This is the kind of moment I love about European summers and spending my vacation time in Europe, renting an apartment.

My first real evening in my apartment in Luxembourg City at 6 pm on Sunday, August 13, 2017.

 





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 😦
