Hi there! I was in Lux for 3 weeks quite a few years back - no race tracks there. Taking trips to Germany and France?

yes it is quite boring here in Luxembourg...,

organising once a month trackdays in Chambley France (Circuit Francis Maillet) , and heading regularly to Spa Francorchamps and Nurburgring GP circuit and sometimes Nordschleife

well its a very small country so I guess we get bored quite easy...no racetracks..but Spa Francorchamps ,Nurburgring GP circuit and Nordschleife (nothern loop) reachable in less than 2 hours is quite nice.

Luxembourg beeing a financial place not that many luxemburgish people work in that domain. got a lot of communters from belgium, france and germany.
I do accounting but not really in that deep financial industry.

proprety prices are very high, very expensive houses, flats...fuel maybe one of the cheapiest in europe but doesnt compensate the huge proprety prices :( , food prices aswell...

we got our own language ( often people think that luxembourg is a part of germany ) but french and germany is tought in primary shool, administrative language is french.

weather isnt really nice here better than in united kingdom I guess, but like last years this summer was all crap.

got no mountain so no skying or such, no sea but a quite nice lake in the north of the country. still got a lot of old castles and the capital is circled by old fortress walls .. its worth a visit
