As we looked over our maps and tried to decide where to go one weekend, I mentioned that I wanted to go to Geneva and catch up with a friend. But we didn’t really have the time in one weekend to drive that far and make it a worthwhile trip.
With a stroke of inspiration I messaged her, and asked if her and her husband were busy on the weekend, and if they’d be willing to meet us half way! To make a long story short (too late), they did! So we’ve been to Luxembourg!
Riding down on Saturday in the driving rain was possibly not the most fun we’ve had on the back of the motorbike. But knowing that we’d be able to catch up with M&G gave us the stamina to keep going!
It wasn’t going to be a long weekend, and we didn’t really have plans of anything to do once we got there, but just being able to wander around chatting was totally worth it!
It is however a capital city, and therefore there is always something going on that you can go to see. On our way past we paid our respects to the Grand Duchess Charlotte.
But I did have a venue in mind, since I hadn’t yet seen the one in Paris, I was determined to get to Cathedral Notre-Dame.
And made it we did. Just as they turned of all the lights …
… so we got scooted out of there pretty quickly. I guess I can say that I’ve been there, but I’d like to go back again! However we were on our way, and exploring!
Over the edge of this balcony, we discovered a fountain. Himself and G found the view at the top of the balcony much more pleasant though! I can’t think why … We walked on deciding that at some point we probably should find food to eat, and wended our way towards where we hoped to find such things.
As with so many cities in Europe, the secret to discovering good food is to find yourself a small alleyway and follow it. First we found a neat little bar to have pre-drinks in, then we all concluded that food would probably be an even more wise idea.
In true world weary traveler tradition, for dinner we ate at a Chinese restaurant. And very well prepared food it was too! I haven’t had steamed pork buns that good in years!!!
On into the night, our Luxembourg Adventure did continue …

The pork buns has me drooling . . . . . .
Steamed pork buns are one of my favourite things!
*adds yum-cha to the itinerary*
Great photos of another great adventure. I hope you’ll be able to make it back down to Luxembourg again soon and, even better, to Geneva, before too long! 😀
Mmmm pork buns. Great, now I want pork buns.
Geneva is on the agenda, though at this point, after the weather warms up a bit
Pork buns for everyone!!! 😀
