Talking XL700V Luxembourg and around

Short rides will go here. First - a visit to France: Hussigny-Godbrange and Cons-la-Grandville.

Hussigny-Godbrange is a small town in France, right on the border with Luxembourg, where iron ore was mined until second half of the XX century. Many Italians came to work and settle. Now the mine is closed but guided visits are possible.


Fence is being built just now. Still, it was not yet closed.


Drilling equipment and a rail engine behind it. Small, I know.




There is my moto in this photo.


A bit of offroad, nothing serious.


Industrial meets natural.


Looking over the border.

Cons-la-Grandville - nice castle - a place worth coming again:

I know Luxembourg is tiny, but there's gotta a bit more you can show us

One day I will have some moto pics from LU. But for now again a bit of France (which is my current close discovery ground). If you are desperate for any LU pics ;) then PM me.

Here are some photos from last weekend. It was dry enough and warm enough (4C) to make a decent ride. As usual I am looking for open dirt roads (well, I get mud mostly).

Zoufftgen:







Rodemack:







Malling:

Grim view of the menacing clouds and a powerplant


Nice contrast

February

Not spring just yet, still less than 10 C. But a Saturday good enough to ride a bit.

Coming from Luxembourg city:


To the Remich area:


Mosel valley:


Source of grapes for making Luxembourgish Mosel wine (simple Rivaner is my personal fav). Germany on the other side:


Schengen village is just round the corner, here you can see Remerschen ponds in the valley. Great spot for waterbirds photosafari ;)




Still some leftover ice getting thinner:


For now we have warmer but rainy weather. Spring must be close as many cranes and other migrating birds are spotted flying north these days.
