Hi! We’re Maarten, Petra, Daan and Tijl. In July 2020 we moved from the busy metropolis of Antwerp to Arlon, a tiny city on the border of Luxembourg. Maarten commutes between Belgium and Luxembourg for work. Petra blogs, tells stories in her podcast and takes care of the holiday home in Lacuisine. Daan and Tijl are going to school in a new language, with new friends. On the blog, we’ll share our personal experiences while providing tips for exploring this beautiful region.
I’m not going to explore the area on a scooter. Trottinette however, was the nickname my dad gave me as a child. A trottinette also reminds me of exploring and traveling. That’s exactly what I’d like to do on my blog: to explore the neighborhood and share our (personal) experiences. Luxembourg is the greenest province of Belgium with lots of beautiful hikes but also some very old and interesting cities. You can enjoy hiking, climbing or cycling on one day while sipping a cocktail on a terrace on another. There are many exciting cities within an hour’s drive in Belgium, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, Germany and France. You can expect a mix of tips for exploring Luxembourg and the wider area with a personal touch.
