This was Laila’s favorite part of Luxembourg. I think this was possibly mine, too.
Not the casemates, the 40,000 square meters of tunnels and rooms dug into the side of the mountain.
Not the cool bridges, which were so varied it made the city one of great contrast.
Not the European Parliament; not the Grund a picturesque medieval town built into the side of the mountain; not La Corniche, called Europe’s most beautiful balcony; nor the Grand Duke’s Palace- although these were all os fantastic we felt as though we had stepped inside of a Disney movie.
Our favorite thing in Luxembourg was its Pirate Ship. The Black Luxembourg Pearl was beached in a sandy children’s park. How fortuitous for adventurous kids and park-loving pirates! The park was full of great things to play with and explore: little fountains, tire swings, bronze statues of hippos to climb on, tons of open grass to run in… and of course a gigantic ship jungle gym to comandeer.
Adelaide was too small to go on the ship, but that’s alright. She had more captivating things to focus on. Like sand.
Swoon. She’s the best kid.
