One-Day Luxembourg, Fun Tiring!

Since yesterday I wasn't home all day so I have more quota for updating my blog YAY! So yesterday I went to Luxembourg with 5 of my friends. Actually, they have this cheap train ticket for 5 persons for only 60 Euro but since there were 6 of us, we had to buy another ticket but the difference was not so much *80 Euro divided by 6 ppl* so we just bought them anyway. We had to catch the 6.55 train from my campus and the journey took almost 4 hours but hell, we went abroad! LOL. Then we bought the Luxembourg City ticket, 30 Euro for 6 persons, not bad right? We could ride buses and went into 58 sites for free. Oh La La!



So this is the small train station connecting our journey to Luxembourg. It was freaking cold but I managed not to feel the coldness with my warm clothes and the excitement :)


This is what greeted as soon as we went out from Luxembourg Train Station. Hello, Luxembourg! We only had about 5 hours to enjoy the city to catch the train to go back to Neubruecke because if we were late, we had to wait all night in Saarbrucken and arrive in Neubruecke the day after >_<>

The country is really small and cute with all the lower towns and the higher places. If I'm not mistaken, you can see the Passerelle Viaduc, the well-known old bridge, in this picture, well correct me if I'm wrong tho.

And this is just me posed in the street in the Centre, I think it's called Place d'Armes where ppl go for shopping. Still excited about the journey and still managed to smile for the pics lol

The bus is called Hop On Hop Off City Tour but we didn't get on that since we had to pay extra and I think walking was kinda interesting. But maybe the City Tour wasn't so bad after all -sigh-


And this is the Cathedral to the Blessed Virgin inspired by the Renaissance style. We didn't go inside tho, I don't remember why but we just kept walking, searching for new experience.

You will see lotsa pics of me in this entry so pls bare with me LOL. This is the Calirefontaine Square near the Cathedral. We stopped for a while to take some pics before we head off somewhere else. Take a deep breath. And off we go!

So here's you can see the Clairefountaine Square located between the Cathedral and Government District and there i posed LOL

Then we walked again to the lower town of Luxembourg. You can see the road we had to take. Loooooong way and I didn't want to think about the way back coz we had to climb up to the Centre again -_____-"

Then we found this somehow 'private place' with a beautiful view to the lower towns and I saw these fall leaves and I couldn't help it but to take retarded pic playing with the leaves LOL look at my retarded happy face!

And still a looong way to go to get to the lower towns so would be nice to take another shoot of photo. Pic pic and more pics!!


And finally we reached the Lower Towns of Grund, Clausen and Pfaffenthal! Now we stopped for a longer time to take more pictures and if you see clearly in this pic, you can see something looks like..... a sitting person.

Ta-da! Looks creepy at first but it is something like a person made from wires! And there were more of them, jumping, flying, and sitting. They look so cute and creative tho. Then we went to the Museum of the History of the City of Luxembourg but we weren't allowed to take pictures :(

This is the National Museum of Natural History and I had to take pic of this globe showing my lovely country, oh how I miss Indonesia. Then we walked again to the higher towns to find food, we were getting hungry!


We went across this small bridge called Rocher du Bock to get to the other side of the towns. I was hell scared of height, you can see it from the face, I was in between of smiling and scared LOL And my friends kept making fun of me making me soo pissed off and scared even more!


See what I was talking about? Loong journey back and this was only the beginning -____-" Oh GAWD!


And after we reached the Centre again, we went to Palais Grand-Ducal, the residence of Grand-Ducal family located in the Old Town. But why there was only 1 female guard tho? Hmmm I wonder. Now it's time to find a good restaurant! I was about to eat ppl! LOL

On the way of finding some good restaurants, we happened to see this singing group singing in a total strange language, maybe it was Luxembourgish or France, all I know it wasn't German.

We decided to eat in Pizza Hut and we sat separately since it was really crowded and some of us don't eat pork, including me. So our table, 3 girls, ordered these food HA! And it was the worst spaghetti I ever tasted. Since the meat spaghetti has pork, the only choice for us was vegetarian spaghetti and boy, I know why I will never pull off as a vegetarian. It tasted weird! But I like the Pizza and Garlic Bread tho. And now time to go again before our time was up in Luxembourg. I didn't know where were we heading off but unfortunately there was miscommunication between us so we got off the bus in this rather quiet place where the European Commission located. So we just took some pics and went back to the train station for going back to our lovely Neubruecke.



So, overall I was really HAPPY even tho I was really tired from walking. We got back with the 5.17 train and arrived in Neubruecke at 8.43 and we spent less than 50 Euro! Couldn't feel my feet anymore, I didn't have energy to clean up my room so I just cleaned my face and went to sleep! And that concludes my fun journey to Luxembourg and in the next 2 weeks we are planning to go to France! Crossing my fingers!
