Snowy tales of Luxembourg

snowy landscapesnow ClervauxLux north snowsnow n Luxisnowy castle

Following my fellow blogger’s suggestion, I have decided to post some little snapshots I have taken in Luxembourg during these winter months. Some are simple, others are poetical, many are different landscapes with some water symphony as I was saying on his blog. 

Most of them are taken in the north of Luxembourg  and some at the Clervaux castle, on a  nice sunny winter day; I used my simple Canon camera and I am happy with these photos but I still have a lot to learn 😉

I think that each season has its beauty, thus winter, too, even if we sometimes freeze. The most important thing is not to let our hearts freeze 🙂 Hoping you will enjoy my photos, I wish all of you a happy and healthy winter even it is not much left and thank you again for reading my blog !


European Table Tennis victory for Romania in 2017! Victorie pentru Romania in Campionatul European de Tenis de Masa 2017!

After several years of efforts and four consecutive finals,  Romania has finally built up the magic and won the 2017 ITTF European Table Tennis championship in Luxembourg city, on Sunday, 17th of September.

Reuniting five amazing girls, Eliza Samara, Daniela Dodean, Bernadette Szocs, Adina Diaconu and Irina Ciobanu, their coach Viorel Filimon encouraged them to play ‘one for all and all for one’ and never stop believing in their chance.  The coach has confessed for the press, by saying: ‘ I have waited 12 years for this gold. Finally we have reached it. We did not have any special preparation; our main weapon was the great quality of each player.’

After Monica Niculescu’s victory at the BNP Paribas Luxembourg Open in 2016, the Romanian Ping-Pong team continues with another victory, strengthening the positive energies for Romanian players in Luxembourg.     Congratulations to the girls and the best of luck for the rest of 2017!                    Photo:


Dupa mai multi ani de antrenamente si patru finale consecutive, Romania a atras toate energiile magice  si a castigat Campionatul de Tenis de Masa European ITTF 2017 in Luxembourg city, duminica, pe 17 septembrie.

Asociind cinci fete fantastice, Eliza Samara, Daniela Dodean, Bernadette Szocs, Adina Diaconu si Irina Ciobanu, antrenorul Viorel Filimon le-a incurajat constant sa joace ‘una pentru toate si toate pentru una’, precum faimosii muschetari si sa creada in fiecare clipa in sansele lor. Antrenorul a marturisit presei: ‘ Am asteptat 12 ani aceste medalii de aur. Acum am reusit in sfarsit. Nu am avut un antrenament special; atu-ul nostru a fost calitatea extraordinara a fiecarei jucatoare.’

Dupa Monica Niculescu, care a castigat turneul de tenis BNP Paribas Luxembourg Open in 2016, a venit randul echipei de Ping-Pong a Romaniei sa adauge o noua victorie, accentuand energiile pozitive existente pentru sportivii romani in Luxemburg. Felicitari fetelor si mult succes pentru restul anului 2017!                               Poza:

Luxembourgish reloaded!

Ech sinn Josephina an ech schwätzen Lëtzebuergesch. Funny sounds, right? It means just this:  ‘I am Josephina and I speak Luxembourgish.’ Complicated language for a little country. But still, romanticism lies in his home-nest in Luxembourg. I have the chance to discover an interesting duchy, close to the centre of Europe and support the fight against cancer thanks to a great team of people who are trying day by day to save lives. I do not know if I have discovered spontaneously Duche du Luxembourg or if it is the Duche du Luxembourg that has magically discovered me. But all I can say is that….it is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Gott beschützt dech, Lëtzebuerg!   Je te remercie pour m’avoir recue avec amitie au milieu de tes vertes collines  🙂 img_5753
