Bouillon to Beaufort (Luxembourg)

Chateau Beaufort
From our brief 2 night stop in Bouillon Belgium, we drove on into Luxembourg. We passed through the city centre, and on back into the countryside, stopping for an on board smoked trout and horseradish sandwich on tasty mixed seed and grain bread followed by more delicious Italian ice-cream from Lidl.
We decided to overnight outside this charming as well as imposing medieval chateau, Beaufort.
We even had a brief, and somewhat distant lightning storm thrown in for good atmospheric measure! I do have to contend with various anxieties, but thankfully thunderstorms is not one of them! I suspect I may have my dad to thank for that, as I recall he reassured me as a child that there was no need to be fearful of them.

I remember one night in particular where he sat with me in my bedroom overlooking the sea that I shared with my sister, the flashes of lightening streaking across the water.

As a child I was rather afraid of the dark, and so I suspect had the curtains wide open for that reason, as well as the weather being close, and so witnessed visually as well as audibly the unfolding drama.

Rather than it be anything frightening, I chose back then to believe it was the fairies moving furniture about, but I no longer believe in fairies, so that throws that theory out of the window!!! 😉

Had a decent night’s sleep, with brief awakening, but no major panics as we’d purposely left the roof blind wide open, as well as making sure ventilation was as good as possible. Michael had an uninterrupted sleep!

This morning we’ve been sat relaxing on board and aim to visit this castle that had allowed us a free night sleep beneath it!

From here we’ll be heading towards Trier in Germany to start our Rhinelands tour.

It’s been good to have a little taster of Belgium and Luxembourg en-route!

    1. Hi Kenny

      Thanks for your comments, which in fact are public, so you might want to email us if necessary. I get to “approve” all comments, so if you like I can always not approve your message.

      All going well here thanks. So as not to over-face the blog followers with too much info, we schedule the blogs daily and so this means there is a lag with the blog of several days. In fact we’re already deep into Germany by now, but I wouldn’t want to give too much away!

      Looking forward to a day in one of Europe’s largest Medieval towns tomorrow. The bikes may even come out!

      Enjoy Chateau Beuvelande & good to hear that the job is going so well so soon. Feel free to pass on our blog address ( to anyone you think might be interested

      See you soon
