Discover the Wonder of Luxembourg

 

Nestled between its more famous neighbors, Luxembourg is a relatively undiscovered wonder. It has a high income per capita…and for gastronomic enthusiasts, it has a high concentration of Michelin-starred restaurants. There is also so much distinctive architecture here there will be lots to see and do. In the lush, rolling countryside there are picturesque castles tucked into forests in the Ardennes Mountains in the north.

Now Hiring for the Coolest Job in the World

One advantage of living in Europe is that cheap airfares make the rest of it so accessible. I’ve just got back home to Ireland after an unofficial three-day jaunt to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. This tiny country holds the title for the highest per capita consumption of wine in the world, so there was a good reason to go bar-hopping.

How to “Buy” a Second Passport

How to “Buy” a Second Passport

During the decade since I first published my popular Passport Book, now in its 10th edition, rarely have I seen so many countries at one time willing to trade official access for foreign cash.

Think of England…Italy…Luxembourg…

Did you guess this was where I was going, from last week’s photo? Here I am in the heart of Europe—if not geographically then at least spiritually. The Grand Duchy has only 455,000 souls and is perhaps what the European Union is all about: the population is trilingual, determinedly outward-looking, and shares borders with three other countries, two of which are major players in the European arena.

Toddlers, Taxation, and Subterfuge

With days at their longest, you know that the annual music festival can’t be far away. There will be music in the air all over France on June 21 for the 26th Fête de la Musique. Come evening in Paris, free concerts in every arrondissement will be yours for the taking.

Wander the high street of any town and you’ll come across countless impromptu jamming sessions—the artistes may even invite you to join in.
