Travel Update: A day in Luxembourg

Luxembourg is a landlocked country in Western Europe bordered by Belgium, France and Germany. As a representative democracy with a constitutional monarchy, it is headed by a grand duke and is the worlds only remaining grand duchy.

It was also our next destination.

Luxembourg, where medieval meets modern. It is a beautiful mash up of skyscrapers and old manors. It is filled with lush greenery, rivers, statues and bridges. And it is the most perfect place to take pictures.

They had a lovely selection of high end shops, including Gucci, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, BCBG Maxazria, Hugo Boss and Tommy Hilfiger. Just before lunch, we had a drink in an old neighbourhood called the Gurd at Scott's Pub, overlooking the river.

For lunch, we headed to the nearest bakery for some picnic fare and ended up in a park, beneath massive old oak trees, on the softest grass, with the sun warming out Cape Town winter bodies.

If this is what a country looks like, when it is ruled by a duke, then I would like to order one for us as well please.
