First day of spring in Luxembourg

Today was a truly spring day: more than 14 degrees Celsius at midday and sun smiling all day long.

The city of Luxembourg was full of people enjoying the warm and pleasant day:

This is one of the few TV commercials that would convince us to buy a car (if we had that kind of money, that is)

Watch closely Michael Schumacher at the end of the spot:

The radical-democratic party

One would expect that the words radical and democratic can only be used in opposition and not in conjunction:

It's possible these people thought unjust the monopoly put by the far-right parties on the word radical...

Also, it must probable that this party is led by some very smart stupid people.

Lausanne by night

We also wanted to show you some pictures of Lausanne by night:

Manora Restaurant - ideal place to eat in Lausanne, Switzerland

During our week-end in Lausanne we found a very nice self-service restaurant:

Located in a classical building in the center of Lausanne, from the outside it seemed to be a very exclusive and expensive restaurant.

Out of curiosity, we approached to see a price list and we've been stunned by their affordable prices: a chicken breast with side dish for only CHF 12 (approximately EUR 8.5).

They had a variety of choices for the main course (chicken, veal, fish, pasta, pizza, sea fruits) and a large offer of side dishes, salads and desserts.
As for drinks they had anything from freshly squeezed fruit juices, to beer, wine and ... free tap water.


The restaurant is very clean and is located on 3 floors with plenty of tables.


If you visit Lausanne, do not miss this restaurant. As can be seen in the ticket above, the address is: 17, place Saint-Francois, 1003 Lausanne.

Hotel review: Comfort Intereurope Lausanne, Switzerland

Last week-end we spent one night in the 3 star Hotel Comfort Intereurope:


Located in the middle of the vineyards surrounding Lausanne, it offers great views of Lac Leman and the Alps:
It is a clean and basic hotel with everything in pretty good state. For a double room we paid EUR 90 (breakfast included).


However, in our opinion, it is more like a 2 star hotel. We say this because:

- very basic breakfast (bread, butter, jam and only one type of salami and cheese). Nothing warm, only cold food

- it's situated on one national route and only 10 meters away from the railways. That means that it's pretty noisy all the time

- there is no lobby in this hotel where one can pass some relaxing moments: only a reception area and a restaurant


Last, but not least, the prices in their restaurant are extremely high (around EUR 25 for a main course).

As a conclusion, we would not recommend this hotel.
