Red Ted scales the heights in Luxembourg
On 28 July, Red Ted took advantage of a business trip by his ‘minder’ Graham Riche, Chairman of TLC Nottinghamshire, to visit Luxembourg and tour the city. The day started with an inspection of the aircraft flight deck and a discussion on technical matters with BA pilot Richard Thrower, prior to take-off from Heathrow.
On arrival, Graham went off to talk all day (he calls it consulting!) and Red Ted set about exploring the city's historic Old Quarter. This entailed a steep climb to reach the highest point on the old city walls to take in the fantastic view below.
Then a descent to Scotts Bar by the Alzette River to cool off after these exertions with a cool drink whilst listening to the strains of ‘Dream, Dream, Dream’ by the Everly Brothers drifting from the jukebox in the bar.
After a freshen-up in the delightful Hotel La Pipistrelle, partially carved into the rock face, it was off to an Italian restaurant for fine wine, superb steak, and, of course, good company.
Finally, after a memorable day, back to the hotel full of bonhomie ready for bed! Dream, Dream, Dream ……
