As mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been rediscovering a lot of good spots in my home country. A ‘staycation’, if you will. Hosting two of my good friends for two consecutive weeks has made me fall back in love with Luxembourg. I used to always complain that although it’s a cute country, there’s not much to do. While I still think that it’s not the most exciting place to live in as a twenty-something-year-old, I think it has its own unique charm. I love that Luxembourg City is walkable and has beautiful valleys running throughout it. I love the countless vineyards in the Moselle region. On the topic of vineyards, I love living in a culture where having a glass of wine after your lunch is the norm.
I’ve been so busy travelling non-stop this past year when I studied abroad in Australia that it has been pure bliss to just unwind at home this summer and do absolutely nothing. It’s called balance, okay? Normally my iCalendar is filled with plans, upcoming travels and endless errands. Right now, I’ve actually scheduled in to do nothing, zilch, nada… and I love it. If you’re one of my friends reading this and I’ve told you that I can’t hang out this week, then forget what I just said – I’m actually sooo busy. Just (partially) kidding, love you, don’t unfriend me! Having said that, I think I’ll curate a little Moselle Valley guide for anyone who’s interested in visiting this serene area of Luxembourg. It’s not like I’m biased or anything, having lived here for the majority of my life… All jokes aside, there’s a lot of beautiful viewpoints, restaurants and wineries in the region and they are definitely worth checking out.
Also, how cute is my little baby Richy!? He’s no longer a baby though as he’s 11 years old now but he’ll always be my little puppy. I’ve been looking after him these past two weeks while my family is away on holiday. The tables have turned, haha! When I was away in London recently for my birthday, something happened to his eye and you can kind of see it in the photo. At first we thought that he might have some sort of eye infection or it was triggered by the heat, but it turns out it’s linked to his nervous system and it hasn’t recovered. When you face him, he looks so young on one side but so old and sad on the other! I feel so, so bad for him and I hope he knows that he’s going to be okay but it breaks my heart. 💔
On a lighter note, I’ll be going to visit one of my best friends at the end of the week in Italy. I’m so excited to see what Northern Italy has to offer, as I’ve only ever been to Milan and Bardonecchia! Most importantly, I’m over the moon that I’ll be reuniting with my friend (and future flatmate) Roniette after not having seen each other for over a year!!! I’m sure we’ll take a bunch of photos so stay tuned for some pasta-filled content from Italy. Ciao!
