In the beginning of November we visited Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. “The City of Brotherly Love”, a nickname from the literal meaning of the city’s name in Greek and also called as “The Birthplace of America” derived from Philadelphia’s role in the American Revolution and location of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Philadelphia or Philly 🙂 touched my heart! The city is amazing! I am putting some links bellow with more information about Philadelphia history and so on.
We spent four lovely days in Philly including the occasion of my very first NBA game, by the way go 76ers! 😉 I enjoyed the game so much!
The Independence Hall is the building where both the United States Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were debated and adopted. There is a guided tour; it’s free but you need tickets. You can get them through the Visitor’s Center in Independence National Historical Park.
Bonjour beautiful people!
We are back home in Luxembourg after some lovely days visiting the USA. As we did a stopover in Robbinsville, New Jersey, we took the opportunity to visit the impressive temple “The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir“. Considered one of the largest Hindu temples in the world, it is made entirely of Carrara marble imported from Italy to Rajasthan, India, where hundreds of artisans began hand-carving the stones. The complex is free and open to the public. We enjoyed so much this visit, the amazing architecture, the wonderful energy and kind people that we met there. One person there said to me “this place is divine”, and I agree. 🙂
Hope you enjoy the tour! I am putting some information and links below.
Hugs and lights

Bonjour beautiful people! In our last trip to Burgundy we made a stopover in Troyes , an adorable and charming medieval French town, about 150 km (93 mi) southeast of Paris and about 3:30 by car (A34) from Luxembourg. We have visited the city before and it is always a pleasure to walk around the old town appreciating the different and beautiful half-timbered houses (mainly of the 16th century).
Troyes’ most picturesque street, the Alley of the Cats, looks today much as it did in the thirteenth century, barely seven feet wide, with housetops leaning against each other. Legend has it that Rue des Chats is so-named because the roofs and lofts are so close together that cats can jump across from one side of the street to the other.
