Flashback Friday: Luxembourg Study Abroad Part 1

I haven't done a Flashback Friday post in forever, so I was thinking it'd be fun to share one of my favorite life adventures this Friday.  The summer between my sophomore and junior years in college, I spent the summer in Luxembourg.  I studied World War I and II history; where in the world could be better to study then right on the borders of France and Germany?  I lived in a small town called Mondorf les Baines and traveled to: Germany, France, Belgium, and The Netherlands on class field trips and weekend excursions while I was there.
