QL Bucket List: Go on a Road Trip


It may have taken me some time but I can finally cross another goal off of my Quarter Life Bucket List: "go on a road trip"! Yes, it has happened! I went on a road trip from Belgium to Luxembourg, luckily it wasn't a long drive and we left the bad weather in Belgium behind when we went to Luxembourg and we did the same when we came back to Belgium! We were so fortunate. 

I won't bore you too much with my stories, so let's keep it simple and sweet. We only stayed for 2 days, walked around a lot, enjoyed the crazy heat, ate a lot of food and drank a lot of drinks. Luxembourg is such a clean city and has so much nature. It's amazingly green, I really loved it. The ride itself was quite beautiful too, though the very steep hills were a tad bit scary.







The people we met were friendly and it was interesting to hear the different languages there. They spoke some sort of German and French but it sounded like nothing that I was familiar with, so that was really cool! It almost felt like really being in some faraway land, haha. Almost! I'm happy I got to cross this off of my QL Bucket List and I look forward to doing more road trips with close destinations. For destinations that are far away, I'd rather fly! Especially during the summer when so many others are taking the car to their country of choice. 

How do you feel about this? Do you prefer traveling by car or plane? What was your favorite road trip?

  1. I prefer travelling by bike or train, because climate change...

  2. Ooh, that looks like a lovely trip! By the way, is it me or is there a Dutch flag in there that you wouldn't expect?
    As for means of travel, I don't have a clear preferation; I like roadtrips because I like the confinement and privacy of a car, but I also like traveling by plane since that typically means going to some faraway exotic destination! ;)

    1. Yes, I was confused about it being the Dutch flag too! The Luxembourg flag is the same except that the blue is much lighter, so.. this is not the Dutch flag :O

  3. I absolutely LOVE Luxembourg! It has been a while since I have visited it for the last time.. You inspired me! I often travel by airplane, just because that's faster and some places can't be reached by train or car (like an Island). A couple of years ago, me and my parents went on a roadtrip from The Hague to Rome. Wauw, that was amazing. Especially the Swiss/Italian border. The nature, the mountains. Soooo pretty! :D Roadtrips are the best

    1. Ja, ik heb hetzelfde! Maar dat geeft mij altijd toegang tot vooraan zitten, haha, want dan is het iets minder erg! En genoeg tussenstops en frisse lucht :-)

  9. Super leuk!! Ik denk dat ik liever in het vliegtuig zit!
    Ik krijg dan nog meer een vakantiegevoel! Maar met
    de auto zie je wel meer.

  13. Ik zit niet graag in de auto, dus geef mij maar een vliegvakantie. Al cruise ik wel graag rond met een jeep, dat heb ik in Griekenland gedaan vorig jaar.

  15. I don't travel by plane because of the big ecological footprint... I do enjoy roadtrips! You can choose when you want to stop and take a gander at the beautiful nature :)
