Happy New Year Luxembourg

The year is about to get wrapped up. For the occasion, I’m currently in the world’s only remaining grand duchy.

The capital, Luxembourg city, is built at a fascinating geographic location. Canyons and gorges divide the city into upper and lower town, which makes it beautiful but a bit tough to navigate. I’m glad I brought my sturdy boots. But the country is a lot bigger than Liechtenstein so there is a lot to explore.

To all my friends across the world, have a Happy New Year wherever you are!
