More room service

I’m back in Luxembourg for a couple of days of work meetings. The weather here is as nice as it has been in London — only of course instead of leaving in time to have dinner out on the terrace, I didn’t leave the office until after all the restaurants had closed (which in fairness […]

On the road again

Kicking off another flurry of travel! Two days of work in Luxembourg, long weekend in Copenhagen, then two days of work in Paris. Unclear whether my newly-planted window boxes will survive back home in London… Nothing exciting to report for Luxembourg. I was at the office in meetings until late; by the time I got […]

Macbeth and the ordinary

I was in Luxembourg all last week for a business trip that turned out to be pretty fun.  This was the annual EU-wide summit, where we get together to celebrate the past year and look ahead to the coming year.  We stayed in a surreal thermal springs resort that straddled the border between Luxembourg and […]

We both made it!

The British Airways flight went perfectly smoothly and I landed right as Justin finished collecting his bags — so we met on the train platform and are making our way in together. So a happy ending after all. Whew!

Third time is not the charm

Seriously. Orange screens again. They offered to put me on the next LuxAir flight, but I don’t trust it to go. So I’ve changed airlines and airports (British Airways to Heathrow) in hopes of actually getting out (at least I know they succeeded yesterday). One potential upside? Justin will land at Heathrow an hour before […]

Silver lining (but still not enough sleep)

So. Guess what I see after twelve hours of waiting in the airport for the next flight to London: Deja vu! A quick scramble, momentary hope for a flight on another airline to a different London airport, then bad news, a voucher for a night’s stay at the Ibis, a brief fight with a taxi […]

Change of plans

6:45am flight delayed, then cancelled, due to weather in London. Next available flight? Twelve hours later. I’m debating whether I just work from the airport or go in to the office. Either way the thought of a full day’s work on 3 hours of sleep is daunting. So I’m starting with an early-morning “lunch” with […]
