Luxembourg is a tiny place, really. Just under 1,000 square miles, if that means anything to you. And it has a bit of a PR problem: “Oh, Luxembourg,” folks will say. “It’s soooooo boring!”
Okay, well, it can be a little quiet here. But quiet doesn’t necessarily equal boring. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is full of surprises–the good kind–and it doesn’t take that much effort to discover them.
Around the Bock is a blog devoted to those discoveries. Follow The Expatresse, veteran expat with over ten years abroad, as she finds out what its really like to live in a country with three official languages.
And what exactly is a bock, you ask? Yes, it is Luxembourgish slang for goat. But the Bock is also a high point in the historic section of Luxembourg City where two Roman roads intersected. Later, Siegfried, the first Count of Luxembourg, established there a small castle called Lucilinburhuc (“Little Burg”) that evolved into Luxembourg City, and later the Grand Duchy. In many ways the blog title is a good reminder that Luxembourg is both a city and a country.
