Luxembourg!!! It's a pretty awesome place!
We took a 3 hour train just after 8am to Luxembourg today. The train goes right into Luxembourg city. It is one of the most beautiful cities/places that I've ever been too. I would totally recommend that you check it out next time your in this part of Europe. Wait until you see my pictures....you'll understand. It's just beautiful, so much to see and very very postcard gorgeous!
We caught the train at 5pm getting in Brussels around 8pm. We picked up subway for the train. In Luxembourg we ate at a really cute pizzeria. We had the best lasagna. I'm telling you, come Monday, I'm really going to miss pasta!
So, this comes to the conclusion of our Belgium excursion. All in all, Belgium has a lot to see. Many beautiful, quant small towns/villages to see. Brussels, though not my favourite, did have a few highlights. And you can't go wrong with the chocolate! Man...Les and I ate some rich, yummy chocolate last night! (I'm going to miss that too come Monday! Lol). Would I come back to Belgium, probably not. But I am glad that I got to experience another European country. You just don't know, unless you put yourself out there, jump on a plane or train and try it. Better to come and know, then sit at home on the couch and dream. Well, that's my life philosophy......and clearly my travel philosophy these days. I sure have been traveling a lot lately! At this rate, I may never leave home (sorry parents!!). There are worse things I could be doing with my life
Well, we have one more day in Europe. And unfortunately, it's mostly going to be spent traveling. Tomorrow is going to be another long day of trains. We are hopping on the Eurostar tmrw back to London. From St Pancras station, we need to get on a train to take us to Gatwick airport. Then we need to take a bus or cab from the airport to our hotel which is apparently in this area. We have one night in London then fly home in the morning. I'm hoping we can get our last pub meal fix tmrw. We will see how the day goes!
Before I sign off for the night....I'd like to say how proud I am of my BFF Candice Garratt for flying home successfully solo!!! Apparently I taught her how to fly making her an independent flying woman!! Well she taught me how to take public transportation so we are even. Clearly we are the best travel partners ever!!! Can't wait to see where our adventure will be to next this summer (peer pressure Can haha)
Well, the room is starting to spin and I am sitting here feeling like I'm slowly rocking back and forth! Damn trains give me vertigo! Must lie down.
Wish us luck....we have a lot of staircases to lug our luggage up and down tmrw
