Ever thought of visiting, escaping to, or even living in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg? This is your all-inclusive, readable, hands-on and entertaining guide to Luxembourg by an Englishman who exchanged the dingy commuters’ life of London for the exciting and cosmopolitan world of Luxembourg.

Book Description
An Expat’s Life, Luxembourg & The White Rose is a refreshing and forthright take on the Englishman Abroad genre. Reading David Robinson’s relaxed prose is like sitting down for a drink or two with the author in the pub of the title. Indeed, as the tome progresses, so the reader warms to Robinson’s down-to-earth character.

The author’s very personal view of an expat’s life in Luxembourg is not overbearing, and even the most informed reader will learn something new about the history of the Grand Duchy, its bureaucracy and social conventions and attitudes. The book is brimful with little snippets of useful information and trivia for those unfamiliar with the country, and Robinson’s anecdotes will spark empathy with readers who live, or have lived, in Luxembourg. —Duncan Roberts, editor of 352 Magazine.
