After many failed swaps, I finally menaged to get a written and stamped postcard from Luxembourg thanks to Jean-Marc! 
Luxembourg, officially the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, is a landlocked country in western Europe, bordered by BelgiumFrance, and Germany. Luxembourg has a population of 524,853 in an area of 2,586 square kilometres.
As a representative democracy with a constitutional monarch, it is headed by a grand duke and is the world's only remaining grand duchy. Luxembourg is one of the world's most developed countries, with an advanced economy and the world's highest GDP per capita, according to the World Bank.
Three languages are recognised as official in Luxembourg: FrenchGerman, and Luxembourgish, a Franconian language of the Moselle region that is also spoken in neighbouring parts of France and Germany. Though Luxembourgish is part of the West Central German group of High German languages, more than 5,000 words in the Luxembourgish have their origin in the French language.
