Today we took in a new Country for both Kent and I today as we traveled to Luxembourg. We traveled by train and although we had to change trains twice, it was very easy and took us through the Mosel Valley which was very beautiful. There were grape vineyards on steep hills and castle ruins along the valley and Mosel river.

Luxembourg was amazing - it has it's origins back to 963 when Count Sigefroi built a stronghold on the rocky outcrop known as the "Bock". The city was captured by the Duke of Burgundy in 1443. During the World Wars the fortifications served as a shelter for 35,000 people during the air raids.

More pictures from Luxembourg to follow in another post.
