Winding down in Luxembourg.

Well, friends and family, we're near the end of our journey. Tonight is our final night in Europe.

We got into Luxembourg early in the evening last night, and promptly visited the annual carnival. Very much like the Ex, only even more ironically hilarious because it's Europe.


Then we loaded up on the breakfast buffet at our hotel (yes, hotel...it was masquerading as a hostel), ie. croissants and pains du chocolat galore.


We began our day of touring by walking along the Chemin de la Corniche, "the most beautiful balcony in Europe."


Then we visited the Bock Casemates, a series of medieval underground tunnels that made up the fortress. It's why Europeans call Luxembourg City the Gibraltar of the North.


And finally, to celebrate Nick's birthday, we went to an awesome restaurant where they served us free champagne (we didn't even mention it was his birthday!) and had great steaks with frites, salad and a local beer (of course) plus dessert (tiramisu for Nick, zabalone tartufo for me).

Tonight we're gonna blow some Euros at the casino, because as our Luxembourg motto goes, why not?

Tomorrow we have a long travel day consisting of two buses and two flights (lovely) so this will likely be the final entry of the trip. I hope you've all enjoyed the photos and stories. My laptop needs some serious TLC when I get back; I think it's struggling with all the battery drains and foreign sources of power and wireless internet.

See you all back in Toronto on the weekend. Cheers!

Take me one more time
Take me one more wave
Take me for one last ride
I’m out of my head
