Weekend was meant for gallivanting after a nerve wracking and brain torture weekday,.:) After the Paris adventure (click here to read the blog entry, “exploring Paris”), this time we opted to go to Luxembourg. It never crossed my mind that I will be able to set foot to the richest country in the world (2010)! Whoa!
From Netherlands (Maastricht), we travelled to Germany (forgot which city) via train. From Germany, we boarded the train going to Luxembourg. The travel time was not as long as the Paris trip.
In a couple of hours, we reached Luxembourg. Luxembourg reminds me of Baguio City (a.k.a. Summer Capital of the Philippines). Flowers were everywhere and there’s also a distinct pine tree scent. The scenery radiates a serene and peaceful feeling. It’s the perfect place to rejuvenate after too much stress from the instant (click here to read the blog entry, “instant”) world. I wonder how Luxembourg maintains its natural ambiance…
After a lengthy walk and sightseeing, we stopped near the bridge to take a breather and enjoy the view. The calming effect was really fantastic! To save money, we brought our lunch and had a feast near the church under the tree. It’s like having a picnic in Burnham Park in Baguio City, Philippines.
It was a such short trip but the most relaxing one. I hope I can go there again someday (even better if I will be with someone special) but for a longer period so that I can explore the country more.
