We have been staying at a EuroCamp in Luxembourg this week. Despite the weak WIFI signal at our cabin and being the coldest I have ever been in August, we had a great time! These camps are amazing, because they are stuffed to the gills with wonderful kids' activities, and our kids just can't get enough. In fact, I wanted to hike through the woods into Larochette (the little town at the bottom of the hill) to see the castle ruins, and we had a hard time figuring out when to do that around the kids' intense social schedule here at the campground. (But we DID find the time for it!) The kids have been swimming (in the indoor, heated pool), playing every sport imaginable, sitting in on BINGO games, getting their faces painted, attending movie nights, making a ton of friends from all over Europe, and going crazy at the fantastic indoor and outdoor playgrounds. Jeff and I planned this stop as a last summer hurrah, and it's been a good one. Within the week, we will settle into a bit of a more normal existence in the UK, and we'll be glad to have these happy memories tucked away to savor later.

The buried trampolines were a huge hit with the kids!

These two were thrilled when Zipp showed up at the playground!

Don't worry, these tigers don't bite!

  1. Hi dear fellow-campers!

    With proper Wi-Fi we finally got to check your blog. Especially having fun reading your posts about the Netherlands and ofcourse Luxembourg. We had a big laugh at your comments on the little lunchroom 'top' in Gouda. Do you know 'uitgaan' does not mean 'leave'? It means 'a night out'!
    Have a nice time Gent (or, as the people of Gent say.. Hent;) ). Great meeting you guys and we hope to see you again some day!

    Michel, Marijke, Jorrit and Fenna

  2. Hi, Marijke! I'm glad you found our blog. We had so much fun meeting and getting to know you and your family in Luxembourg! Thank you for correcting my Dutch! That definitely makes more sense! I hope our paths will cross again, but regardless, we will definitely be able to stay in touch with the wonder of the Internet!
