Has that ever happened to you getting lost on a road trip? For me, it has been three times, in Dallas (USA), Luxembourg (Europe), and Todos Santos (Mexico). All three places are very different, but these trips had one thing in common, will get to that later.
Luxembourg one of Europe’s smallest countries and is one of the world’s richest, it has castles, its green and this tiny country has proud and unique traditions and is hospitable and hearty. Cuisine in Luxembourg is very personal and its traditions are primarily borrowed from Germany, France and Belgium; however, this country has established its very own traditions like its Bouneschlupp Soup, Sea Fish, and its pastries. Oh yes, we got lost, well my friend who was driving got lost (men do not like to get lost in a car) we were driving from Germany into Luxembourg but something happened and we were in France and then back in Germany and then Luxembourg and then repeat, it was a surreal experience. But we got to see another part of France, Metz, and we were in Mettlach, Germany. I did not have many photos of Luxembourg, but years later we went again and I got to really experience it…

So now back to my question at the beginning what did all this trips had in common . . . it was so much fun! Who knew getting lost was so fun. Maybe not so much to the people driving, but not for me, got to see so many things that were not intended, saw other side of my friends and family, had fun in the process, and great photographs too.
I have learned that through the years, to have fun, even if you get lost. It does not apply only on trips, but in life. Sometimes we take the wrong road and things do not go as plan, but the outcome was much better. We must see life with a different perspective and have fun in the process.
