Too bad for you, I just needed an exciting title that sounded good with Luxembourg.
But! We did get lucky.
Lucky that one of Dom's fraternity brothers is studying abroad there so we had someone to show us around!
We got to Luxembourg around noon, and started our day by making our parents proud and touring the historical castemates.
You know you're old when you chose to do something educational...and pay for it. It was so great!
I wish I had pictures to do the city justice, but there was a weird haze that made all my pictures really washed out. You just have to use your imagination a little!
We got dinner and drinks with him, and then something happened that's not supposed to happen when you're with a local. We got lost.
Sam works in Luxembourg City, but lives outside of it, so once we got down into the city he got disoriented! Per usual it turned into an adventure, as we tried to find our way up.
You can see in pictures that the city of Luxembourg is in kind of a valley of sorts. They built it that way to protect the city, but when you've found your way down...it's hard to get back up!
Eventually we made it, but not before Sam informed us that Luxembourg has the highest rate of lost landmines.
Or before we followed a path we thought would lead us up, but turned out to be a government building that took our picture when we stepped on the property.
We may be wanted in Luxembourg now...come to think of it.
