Just a few more days…

Dear co-trainees,

Sadly, the end of our 5 month traineeship is rapidly approaching.
Last weekend, we already had our great goodbye weekend, the final overnight trip to Esch sur Sure. The weather was fantastic, we had a picnic by and a swim in the lake, we went canoeing, had ice creams and spent the night at the youth hostel in Lultzhausen. On Sunday we visited Esch sur Sure, and unexpectedly returned hitchiking (no trainees were harmed in this event) to the hostel! Buses in Luxembourg (and especially the ones on Sundays are not to be trusted!) Or we just should have looked better at the schedule… 😉 The very last group of motivated trainees stayed for an interesting and relaxing trip on the solar boat, after which the 2 bravest among us took a final dip in the water 🙂

On another good note, there are still some nice events coming up!

  • On Thursday 24/07, we have the farewell dinner at the Mediterranean restaurant Manso, financed with the money raised!
  • On Saturday/Sunday, we invite you to go to the Medieval festival in Vianden (26/07 – 03/08), and enjoy the views on the chairlift.
  • On Sunday evening (27/07, 19u), you are invited to Gloria’s all you can eat (not so) veggie dinner (7 euro) at Bouneweger Stuff, close to the train station.
    Note: Please use the voting buttons in the e-mail you received. Also the menu will depend on it: more people= more variety! Invite your friends and inform Gloria.
  • On Friday 25/07 The Party SC plans a final party at Epic! The deal is as follows: drinks are half price until midnight, no entrance tickets needed!

Have a nice week and hope to see you all at the events!

Vianden highlights…

Last Sunday, a small group of trainees took over the little village of Vianden…
There were probably more visitors than residents that afternoon!

Our Trips SC took the lead and after taking busses, trains, and more busses, including an unexpected short coffee stop in Ettelbruck, we arrived safe and sound by the river Our, in Vianden. And there, at a 310 metres height, we saw the beautiful Château de Vianden20140407-092816.jpg

We set of for a brisk walk, to visit the castle. We admired wonderful views and overlooked the city and its surroundings. Once back down, we discovered the Ancien Cinéma, a retro café run by Polish owners, where cartoons were playing on a large screen, and seatings were actual old cinema seats.

After some yummy pizza’s, cheese cakes, carrot cakes, apple pies, and brownies, some of us went of for another walk, this time on the ancient walls that used to fortify the city. We admired yet other views, the one more astonishing than the other, but one of the most memorable things of the day was probably… the playground 😉

Many thanks to our Trips SC –Joanna, Ilaria and Regina — for this initiative and for offering us a nice but tiring Sunday, I’m sure we all slept like babies that night, and dreamt Medieval dreams!

See you on the next trip!
