Hullo, Gareth. How's the weather in Manchester?

Also I must ask: Firwat Lëtzebuergesch?

Hey, Lingu!

Take one guess on the weather... cold, dark and raining at the minute! But it's how we like it!

I'm not 100% sure why Luxembourg appeals to me. I just have this fascination with the small/tiny countires of Europe. Lux, San Marino, Lichtenstein, Faroes and so. Lux more probably because of it's proximity to France and Belgium - as I have French ancestry.

Hopefully I'll be going to see the place this coming year!
