l is for luxembourg

Not that I've ever been to Luxembourg, mind you.  However, when I was in Belgium, the Netherlands and France on my vacation a few weeks ago, my mother thought I was in Luxembourg and Berlin.  No idea where she got that, but that's my mom for you.  I'm glad I didn't disappear because if the authorities had questioned my mother, they would have been looking in the wrong countries entirely.

How about some "L" things that I actually have seen for this Alphabe-Thurdsay?  Let's start with leaves.  I've got some sort of fascination with leaves.  I love them.  Sticking to the traveling theme I've got going on lately, I'll show you some that I saw on the ground in one of the countries I mentioned above (not sure which one). 


They were HUGE.  I thought I got a picture of my hand with them so you could see the size but either I was mistaken or my camera ate it.  Either way, you have to take my word for it.

Next, the Bear and I were trying to find our way around (probably) Brussels, so we got out the trusty old map.  I would have been happy just to know what time zone we were in but with this map we identified our latitude and longitude.  Didn't find where to meet the bus on there, though. 


We found it eventually, as you can see by the fact that we're not still lost.

Speaking of Belgium (and we sort of were), am I the only person who didn't know that Belgium is known for lace?  Well, apparently it is. 


Yep, you could get all the lace you could eat.  Lots and lots of lace.

Well, that's all I've got for L.  I'll try not to be so random for the letter M next week. 

Nah, just kidding.  I'll be as random as ever.

My favorite photo is the leaves...I love leaves too! YOu are not random, you are just a fast thinker, that's what I tell my hubby when I am talking about 3 things at the same time. Great post!

I haven't been abroad to many countries, but Luxembourg is one that I have visited. It's wonderful. Do go!!

By the way, I love London too; though I'm not sure I'd actually want to live there again. It's great in small doses.

I had no idea Belgium was known for lace! I guess you learn something new everyday :) Can't wait to see your pics from Amsterdam and France!

How lucky you are to be a world traveler! As usual, your photos are beautiful - especially the leaves.

And you didn't buy Evie that dress in the window? I thought we were friends. . . .

Those leaves look like they are sweating!

And it cracks me up that your mom thought you were in totally different countries.

Paige, those leaves are terrific! How did you do that?

Paige, I thoroughly enjoyed your post and the journey. The leaves and the lace are fabulous. Great job.

My mom would mix up the countries too (don't tell her I said that.) I Love the image of the lace. Not because I really love lace, but I love the stores that display all their wares in the windows. You don't get to see that much in the States. Thanks for a lovely "L" post (and for the visit)!

That is a lot of lace. Seriously. Pretty, but oh my goodness. Just thinking about it makes me itch.

Those leaves remind me of the ones we saw in Maryland. As huge as dinner plates. And so pretty! I haven't been to Luxemburg but have a dear friend that is from there. It would be nice to go and see it. The lace is lovely too! Merry Christmas!~Ames

very fun post! It IS a good thing you didn't get kidnapped. I'm a leaf lover, too!
oooo...look at all that lace!

I stopped to catch my breath in these last few hours before Christmas and I so enjoyed this lovely little vacation.

It was nice to put up my feet and travel along with you.

Please accept my apologies for my late visit this week...somehow my days got away from me.

Holiday wishes for a time of joy and peace for all your loved ones.

A+

Hey! We get those giant leaves here too! Those are so freaky aren't they?

Wow, so you hit up Belgium, the Netherlands and France all at once? That's pretty cool. I wish I could do that too. No wonder you were gone for so long :)

I didn't know that Belgium was known for lace either. I always thought they were known for waffles and chocolate. Wait, are they known for chocolate or is that Switzerland....or is that just every country in Europe?
