Another day we drove down to Southern Belgium, through Luxembourg (how many people go to Luxembourg--nobody) and into Southern Netherlands. We now know why no one goes to Luxembourg--there is nothing there!! It was a pretty drive, but we got into the city, there was a small Christmas market we walked through and that was about it, but now we can say we have visited. Here are our two pictures from Luxembourg!!

Aachen, Germany is a little town that is tucked right between Netherlands and Belgium. It is famous for being a favored residence of King Charlemagne and is where his remains are now. There was a really pretty cathedral we went and visited and of course, we went to a Christmas market.

|Cool sculpture we found--it was bronze puppets that moved.|
|We always find the best street performers.|
In Netherlands we went to a town called Valkenburg. The cool thing about Valkenburg is that it has a castle in the middle of town with a ton of tunnels underneath that they built so they could escape. The Christmas market was in the tunnels--it was so cool.
|Some of the cool graffiti paintings we saw|
Here are pictures from our day in Maastricht, Netherlands--a lot of fun also!!
