MY JAUNT TO LUXEMBOURG


I traveled to Luxembourg in the spring and was very much surprised by its multi-level design. When you first drive in it looks very chic with hotels, banking institutions and fancy buildings, then you drive down in a sort of spiral and each level seems to belong to a different century. It is surreal as you navigate your car slowly to see a very old European city emerge with beautiful old mansions. At the top you feel like the 21st century and as you drive down the many levels you end up driving on small cobble street roads to finally arrive in a picturesque town from the Middle Ages.   Hope you like this picture I took of the many bicycles as well as the castle-like structure at a higher level.



Today I joined Sue who hosts Rednesday.  If you want to link up just click HERE to see a lot more red.

I've also joined Donna at ABC Wednesday. Today's letter is J.  Care to see more "J" post then click here.

  2. I am glad you had the opportunity to visit this interesting place and share it with us. There was several reds around to make it perfect for today. Even the traffic light turned red for you.

  3. Gorgeous! I was only in Luxembourg once - to the Villeroy & Boch factory! If I ever get back there, I'll make it a point to check out the city!

  6. Looks like a lovely place to visit, with something for everyone! Personally, I would love seeing the old parts the most, especially that town that looks like it's straight out of the Middle Ages!
    Happy REDnesday!
