Eventyr i Luxembourg ... Adventures in Luxembourg

Vi tog til Luxembourg for at besøge Mads´ venner, Allan og Marianne. De er danskerne fra Herning som har boet i Luxembourg om 4 år, og hver sommer, tager Mads og hans andre venner, Kenneth og Christina, til Luxembourg at besøge dem. At være i et værelse sammen med Mads, Kenneth og Allan er ligesom kigger en episode af "Saturday Night Live"... du aldrig slutter griner! De er ligesom 3 brødre, og hver fem minutter, en af dem anfører filmen "Coming to America". Den var en rigtig god weekend og jeg lærte mange ting om Luxembourgs historie fordi historie bøger i Amerika har ikke meget om Luxembourg!

We went to Luxembourg to visit Mads´ friends, Allan and Marianne. They are Danes from Herning who have lived in Luxembourg for about four years, and every summer, Mads and his other friends, Kenneth adn Christina, go to Luxembourg to visit them. To be in the same room with Mads, Kenneth and Allan is like watching an episode of "Saturday Night Live".. you never stop laughing! They are like 3 brothers, and every five minutes, one of them is quoting the movie "Coming to America". It was a great weekend and I learned so many things about Luxembourg´s history because the history books in America do not seem to have much about Luxembourg!

Dag 1 i Luxembourg-- lækre mad, vin, champagne, rigtig god samtale, og den Nintendo Wiis boksning og tenis kamper!

Luxembourg var en "fortified" by med en mur omkring den. Den er en MEGET FLOT BY og LAND... Luxembourg was a fortified city with a wall surrounding it. It is a BEAUTIFUL CITY and COUNTRY.

It looks so pretty there. Everyone I know that has ever been there always talks highly of it. Glad you got a chance to not only see a new place but hang out with some friends also.
