40 people signed up for it and so it looked like the final trip was going to be a great success. But then, obviously, we had to pick the worst day weather-wise possibly… 15 degrees, rain & wind and in the end we had 16 participants out of 40. [Actually it could have been expected, … Continue reading Rain, wind, kayaks & fun!
After many changes in our final trip plans, we finally decided to split it into a few parts and to stick to Luxembourg. As you can imagine, it was all carefully considered.

It has loads and loads of hiking trails, rambling through the green parts of the country. Flat, hilly, circular, interconnected, easily reached by trains or buses, … Continue reading A day on foot
So, here it comes, our first hiking trip! We’ll go east, to the Mullerthal region, called Luxembourg’s little Switzerland. We’ll start in Echternach and follow the route E1, recommended by our tourist office. It is 11.7 km long, so about 4 hours of walking. It is not very easy, as it often goes up and … Continue reading Hiking Trip: Saturday 18th of April
The Relais pour la vie 2015 (10th edition), event which supports people suffering from cancer and their families, attracted a lot of people this year: such a conscious and well-attended event proved once more how concrete actions such as the Relais are fundamental to widespread solidarity and helping the patients not to feel alone at … Continue reading Relais pour la Vie: we were there!
