LUXEMBOURG

The city of the freshwater mermaid! Luxembourg is over 1000 years old, and as beautiful as ever. I LOVED the infusion of French, Belgian, and German cultures—all mixed together so perfectly, with beautiful views and delicious chocolate :).

 Lovely architecture.

 Love the rivers and bridges! We looked for Melusine, the freshwater mermaid from the myth, but didn't see her :)

 My friend Erin and I decided that we should live in that little house second from the right... and dreamily look out the top story window at view of the river...

 There were really fun Art Nouveau elements subtly hiding in plain sight on lots of buildings in the city—like little happy surprises :)

 The American Cemetery and Memorial. It was super peaceful here, because we were some of the last people of the day to visit.

 This section of the city was called "Paris." No idea why.
