Stop #5: Luxembourg

What struck me about this trip to Luxembourg were the skeleton trees. It was not quite spring yet, but so beautiful.

I think my fascination with Lux has to do with the fact that it is so different from where I come from. The Caribbean countries I have visited and resided in are jam packed with bright, vivid colors everywhere that sometimes get rather sickening. In contrast, the colors in Luxembourg city are far more subdued.

Of course, this is a classic syndrome of the grass being greener on the other side and all that. Exoticism, after all, is beauty that is different from the beholder’s norm.img_20160412_191704.jpg

It is important to remember that there are people who live a very different way of life from you. No better, no less.

Do not condemn what you do not know or understand.

That is the beauty of travel. You learn to be slow to judge, and more open to the beliefs and stories of others.
