Day 3 - Sunday, 7th September, 2014
We woke up at about 8.30am and Gilly immediately launched a tirade of abuse against me claiming that I had kept him awake all night through my snoring. This is from a bloke who has perfected the art of snoring whilst sleeping on his front. I have previously had to suffer sleepless nights in Hong Kong, Dublin to name a a few, when on tours with Gilly.

We loved walking around Luxembourg City. Americans think something 200 years old is old....Luxembourg City was established in the 7th century. Mind-boggling!

... and very very beautiful. The new part is like any other city but the old city is a delight to meander through.
We caught the usual public transport to the city, bus stop just outside the park here and the ride only took us 15 minutes. We did get off at the wrong spot though, we were told where to get off but did not know exactly where that was ( no signs anywhere much ), so when we arrived at the railway station we felt that this would be a pretty safe place to get ...
