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





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.





The City Skyliner in Luxembourg City

29 08 2017

I never had this figured out until I decided to do a post now on this panoramic, turning observation deck called “Cityskyliner” that I saw from the ground in Luxembourg City.  I thought it was a permanent fixture in the city but no, they apparently bring it in, and take it back.

Quite like!  Should’ve gone on!!





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.





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.
