I have to tell you, doing Travel Tuesdays on the blog is making me realize that I need to do some more traveling. Ha!
So today’s travel destination that I am sharing with you is Luxembourg, a European country that is bordered by Germany, France and Belgium. Although it is relatively small (population of less than 600,000), it is a very wealthy country and, according to The World Bank, has the highest GDP per capita in the world.
We stopped in Luxembourg City for a few hours to have lunch so I don’t have a bunch of pictures but from what I saw, everything was incredibly clean and there was a ton a great shopping there. However, the Euro was graciously kicking the U.S. dollar’s butt the year we were there (and still is!) so I refrained from making any purchases.
Nonetheless, if you are ever looking to do some great European shopping with a little bit of historical scenery mixed in, this is the place to go.
Our German friend managed to perfectly parallel park the van we had rented so we made sure to take a picture for memories of his expertise.
All of the homes around the city had a very ancient feel to them and were surrounded by tons of pretty green trees.
Many of the roads were raised above the city so that you are able to get an aerial view as your drove through.
We only took one picture together while we were and later realized that Brandon’s fly was down when we took it!
Nothing a little cartoon can’t fix.
Well, that is all I have of Luxembourg but even though we were only there for a few hours, I was impressed with how clean and safe it felt and hope to go back some day.
Had you heard of Luxembourg before? Have you done any shopping overseas?
