My Europe Trip on the Shoestring: Continuing our journey (Luxembourg)

The next morning (i really lost count of the days), we checked out and caught a train to Basel. Why Basel? No specific reasons. But part of it because of the Easyjet promo. So, the train departed Brussels midi at 10 am. 6 hours train ride...Under normal circumstances, it seems so long but for me, i didn't even notice the time. I was so engrossed in scrutinizing the scenery, 6 hours seemed so fast. At first, my route was to Milan but after listing some reasonings, i decided to re-route to Basel.

In the train, very cozy...

Sheep everywhere

After halfway, we stopped for lunch and quick sightseeing at Luxemborg, the smallest countries in EU.

Still a lot of bikes!

Bangunannya unik2
 Opposite the train station, there's a muslim restaurant owned by a Lebanese man (if i'm not mistaken). The food was ok and the price was fine too.

Kebab and beef apa ntah with fanta & ice lemon tea
Hajat hati mula2 nak naik hop on hop off Lux for a quick view of the place but we arrived there a bit late. So, we cancelled our plan and just 'ronda2' at the area nearby and belik souvenirs at the souvenir shops along the lane. Negara ni nampak mcm aman-damai aja... Ala2 kampong dekat UK plak sekalik tengok. After a few hours there, we all walked back to the train station to catch the train to Basel. X banyak tangkap gambar kat sini, pasal nak kejar masa belik2 barang, jalan2 sikit dan teros ke train station semula.

Waiting for the next train to Basel. Kecik aja stationnya.
