Hello friends, I have received a job offer for Luxembourg and I will be moving hopefully in December. I will be traveling with my partner and also my 16 year old small dog. Unfortunately most of the people that I have asked if they accept animals gave me a negative feedback. Can you please help me with advice or do you know something that will accept a pet? Also we are looking for something furnished and maybe with a parking spot. Any help would be much appreciated please :(Have a magical day,Andreea
Hello, I am studying French and I would like to practice. So if you want to meet some one to practice together, or if you are French native speaker and you would like to help, please let me to invite you for a drink. Or if you know some club or anywhere that aims to practice language, please let me know. Thanks in advance. Regards, Yen
There are couple of topics with bits of info on internet connections at home but I thought I will share the results of my pretty thorough work.I was using Post's VDSL for the last 5 and half years. Can not complain, it did what it promised. Speed test gave 11Mb down, 550kb up. Price is been for all these years 59€ per month. But sometimes 11Mb down is not enough anymore, so I started to look for other ISP's and make a comparison. My goal is to have an Internet connection with unlimited data volume, without bells and whistles (services which I don't need).Also, I am comparing sometimes 30 or 50 or 100Mb download speed, so I kind of compare prices for different speeds. 30Mb download would be enough for me.To be honest, those monthly fees that are shown with big numbers on the websites of all the ISP's are never correct. All the ISP's will add you at least a router rental fee, which is around 6- 7€ per month. Plus, they all push their landline subscription to you, some of them force you to take also a TV subscription or a mobile. It is like when you go to a restaurant to have just a dessert and a coffee and the restaurant says: "If you won't take the salad and main course, you can not have a dessert!".So here it comes:Eltrona- Communication was good. All my emails got response.You are forced to take the home package with TV and landline. Unlimited 100/10 Mb internet connection + TV + landline- total monthly fee 59€. Join Experience- Communication was good. All my emails got response. This is a joint company- 50% Post, 50% Joint wireless. For fiber@home M, 50/10 Mb, Fritzbox rental and EU LARGE FLAT offer at 25,60 € (excl VAT) mobile subscription- total monthly fee 67.36 € (plus some VAT). They told me I can not have unlimited data volume with the cheapest (9.90€ per month) mobile subscription! But later they contacted me again and told they would make an exception for me and instead of EU LARGE FLAT I could have unlimited data volume also with SMALL+ Offer instead of a LARGE. Luxembourg Online- Communication was good. All my emails got response.With LOLFiber 30 you will subscribe also to a landline but it costs 0€ if you do not use it. For 30/10 Mb internet and FRITZ!Box 7560 rental- total monthly fee 48.90 €.You can rent FRITZ!Box 7490 instead of FRITZ!Box 7560. That would raise your total by 2€ per month.Visual Online- Nitro M (30/10 Mb) costs 49.90 plus router rental 7,90€- total monthly fee 57.70 €.Can't say about communication as I did not write them. All the info was pretty clear on their website.There are yet two ISP's- Orange and Numericable, but a little googling convinced me that it would be smarter to stay away. Actually I had Numericable's connection for years until 2011 and it was very difficult to end their contract. Finally they said I have not returned their modem (although I had!) so I had to pay some penalties. Very annoying, stay away.--------------So I chose Luxembourg Online LOLFiber 30. It was very easy to order- you do it all on their website. Ordering took 10 minutes (setting up my account with LOL took half of that time).After 10 minutes from ordering a very nice mademoiselle called on my phone, and set up the installation date (more than a month from ordering date). She told me that there will be cabling fee but I told her all the (cat7) cables are already installed in our house and their technician should only bring the equipment and test if it works. So they made a remark in their docs and I will not have to pay for cabling. They sent then 2 files to my email for me to sign, scan and send them back.Very neat, you don't have to go out of your home to make a contract or order the connection. And it can be done basically within an hour.-----------------------------------Ok, the month has passed and technician came to install the TP Link MC220L fiber-to-Eth converter and FritzBox 7560 router.LOL is using Post's fiber and it seems that some patch was not placed somewhere. At least the fiber-to-Eth converter did not get the link up. On the next day the technicians came to fix the thing, found a fault somewhere out of our house and they got the link up. Speedtest gave me ping 3ms, download 29Mb/s, upload 10Mb/s.I also was able to configure my own VoIP within the Fritzbox. With Post's Fritzbox (7550) I had to edit the configuration with Telne in order to get my personal VoIP workingt. I was not able to configure the Post's Fritzbox in a normal way. But after editing the config I got it working also with Post. With LOL it was much simpler. With AVM.de tutorial I got it working in 10 minutes.I hope my comparison will help you when choosing between Luxembourg ISP's.
There is an official UK Government and Parliament Petition being circulated calling upon HM Government to implement a rule that if the remain or leave vote is less than 60%, based on a turnout less than 75%, there should be another referendum. Turnout in the EU Referendum, for whatever reason (complacency, other things on their mind?) was less than 50% in the 18-24 age group, which is sad considering this will be one of the demographics most affected in the future by the UK's withdrawal from the EU.If a petition gets 10,000 signatures, the government will respond. If a petition gets 100,000 signatures, it is considered for debate in Parliament. This petition currently has 3,379,642 signatures and the number is rising rapidly as I write. Only British citizens and UK residents have the right to sign, therefore, unlike during the referendum last Thursday, this includes ex-pats. The petition has already been presented to the UK Parliament and is awaiting response. Maybe there is a second chance with this petition. If you are interested, here is the link to sign it to ask for a second referendum......perhaps, this time, it will also include ex-pats: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/131215If you agree with the content of this e-mail, then please pass it on to as many people as you know either by e-mail or social media as quickly as possible.If you do not, I apologise for any inconvenience.
Can anyone tell me if there is a shop in Luxembourg selling paper bags? In particular Lavender coloured bags like these http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0016L11LE/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=A2F0KQP9JWSS79. I want them to make themed party bags for my daughter's Dora the Explorer party. Also, is there a good general craft supplies store anywhere? Many Thanks!!

A survey carried out by the UK Electoral Commission has recently found that half of British expat respondents are unaware that they are able to register online to vote in the UK. Register online by 16 May 2016https://www.aboutmyvote.co.uk/register-to-vote/british-citizens-living-abroad . Your EU pension, job, property, freedom of movement could all be at stake should Brexit occur.
