Despite myself insisting I’d wake up to say goodbye to Damien, Cathy + the girls, I just kept a-snoozing and they decided it was best to let me be. I was a little sad that I didn’t get to hug goodbye (well, they actually kiss here – this has been something I expected but, being politely British, this is still taking some getting used to 😉 ) – but, upon awakening and slugging my way through to the kitchen, I saw that I had my own place set-up for me!
THIS CHOCOLATE SPREAD IS SENSATIONAL.
In-fact, I’ve asked Damien to send me some jars back to Scotland in exchange for some Scottish Tablet + Shortbread! 😀
When we initially met, Damien, Cathy and I spoke for a good while into the night and we ended up onto the subject of the fear of trusting strangers and just apprehension of committing to decisions in general.
I live by the motto, ‘ Choose Love, not Fear.’ – and Damien + Cathy found this so interesting that they wrote it on their kitchen blackboard – Woohoo! 🙂
I forgot to take a photo of it, but Damien has a huge collection of International and domestic bottlecaps from as far out as Japan to America pressed into his kitchen wall tiles – it’s an incredible idea! Just get some tile cement, smooth it over alternative tiles (or just don’t add a tile) then press all of the bottle caps into the cement in pattern. He also had some Brewdog bottlecaps, that’s a Scottish Brewery based in Ellon, near Aberdeenshire! 😀
This is where I dried my clothes the night before. Also, check out the gnarly wooden Kenyan cross X chair – all hand carved!
Can’t forget Johnny Cask 😉
The Dropkick Murphys apparently come to Belgium too.
I always leave a note for my host’s if I don’t see them before I leave…
– this one included my address for CHOCOLATE. I think this guy would like some too.
My host’s had a wonderful aptitude to re-using things – HOW COOL ARE THESE BATHROOM SHELVES?!
I left number 24 with a heart full of excitement, love and wellbeing. 🙂
I’m not actually sure this is one, but it’s the only photo I have of this street – there were stripper bars everywhere just by the border of Luxembourg – kinda funny. ^_^
LUXEMBOURG BORDER WAS INCOMING!
Sensational solar panels. Has to be said.
LUXEMBOURG HAD NO SIGN SAYING ‘Welcome to Luxembourg’. – SO I TOOK A PICTURE OF THE FIRST FLAG INSTEAD.
I seemed to stop taking pictures right about here, so I may as well just say that I waddled onwards to Luxembourg City, met with my brilliant host’s Mike and Carlos – freaked the funk out when I realised my train was cancelled (more on that later) – but then met it with a solution based mindset and slept soundly ready to hop up for the mornings travel!
