Luxembourg – July 2018

Question: What do you do when you’re home alone and bored on a Saturday night? Do you: A) Set up a Netflix binge-a-thon? B) Do a heck-load of washing? C) Decide to go to Luxembourg for the day? If you’re anything like me, C) seems like the most logical option. So there you have it […]
