Just got corrected and need to make a slight correction. The next day ride is to Luxembourg and it actually happened before Cochem. No matter really , just keeping my chronology straight. So off to Luxembourg for the day we went. In part due to its history and unique culture. From Wikipedia Luxembourg, officially the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, is a small landlocked country in western Europe. It is bordered by Belgium to the west and north, Germany to the east, and France to the south. Its capital, Luxembourg City, together with Brussels and Strasbourg, is one of the three official capitals of the European Union and the seat of the European Court of Justice, the highest judicial authority in the EU. Its culture, people, and languages are highly intertwined with its neighbours, making it essentially a mixture of French and German cultures, as evident by the nation's three official languages: French, German, and the national language, Luxembourgish. The repeated invasions by Germany, especially in World War II, resulted in the country's strong will for mediation between France and Germany and, among other things, led to the foundation of the European Union. In part because petrol is cheaper there and partly why not as its a nice day out. On the way out of town we needed to deal with a couple of small motorcycle things. A shout out to this place for treating us well. Lunch in the city and home to Trier as we had to get moving.
