In this post from my retrospective travel diary of 2102, we are leaving the small town of Mersch in Luxembourg and continuing our travels northwards.

As usual I’m taking photographs from the front seat of the car and documenting our journey.

The scenery consists mostly of small towns, villages with architecture typical of the region and either rural agricultural or forested landscape.

A few buildings had a character all of their own, but in general the only thing that raised our eyebrows was the pedestrian crossing that consisted of white stripes on a red background rather than the white and black arrangement we are more used to seeing.

We only saw this twice, and in the same village so maybe it was for a specific purpose (everywhere else there were just the normal “zebra”crossings). One building made us laugh, it had a very large overhang of the street frontage facing roof-line: why build a porch when you can have this? Let’s take a look…

  1. Beautiful countryside- the rolling hills remind me a bit of Prince Edward Island.
