Party in Luxembourg

I’ve been in Luxembourg all week for an EU business summit, which means many interesting-ish meetings and a massive themed costume party. Last year’s theme was The Great Gatsby, which meant I got to wear my tux (always a delight), but this year’s theme was The Future Is Now, which, I’m sorry, but what does […]

Because why go only once?

The choice was room service in the hotel room by myself or Christmas-market food with friends. Clearly there was only one right answer…

Christmassy Luxembourg

Sometimes you just have to schedule Monday morning meetings that require you to fly in the night before and enjoy the Christmas market. I took a tasting menu approach to dinner: first a bratwurst with sauerkraut . . . . . . then some raclette over potatoes . . . . . . with a […]

Off to Luxembourg

Like all good things, weekends in Paris come to an end. This one ended at a cafe in the Gare de l’Est, where I pulled out my laptop and caught up on work emails while waiting for my train to Luxembourg. We pulled in to Luxembourg around 4pm, and after dropping my bags at the […]

Luxembourg!

Super-short trip to Luxembourg: three of my senior business clients are leaving their roles (two staying in the company, one leaving), so tonight we got together to share one last hurrah. I had intended to stay tomorrow and do work — you know, to justify the “business” trip. But then Luxembourg announced a new public […]

Luxembourg at twilight of Valentine’s Day

Back in Luxembourg for another conference, this time with our devices business. The upside? Instead of being stuck all day in a hotel conference room, we got to meet in the light and airy Philharmonie concert hall. The downside? Between last week and this week, I’m all conferenced out. I’m tired of corporate Kool-Aid and […]

Diverted to Essex!

Flying back from Luxembourg to London in a smallish propeller plane mostly full of my colleagues coming back from the same conference. The weather is terrible the whole way — high winds and clouds, lots of turbulence. Finally we start our descent into London City Airport, breaking through the clouds into driving rain. But as […]

Dramatic reading…

Note to my teenage self circa 1996 when I was on the competitive poetry- and prose-reading circuit for high schoolers in rural Oregon: Have all the fun you want doing this because, yes, it turns out this is a life skill you will use in your job as a lawyer in the European offices of […]

Room service in Luxembourg

It hasn’t been two weeks since I got home from Sydney and Singapore, and already I’m on the road again! Two days in Luxembourg, where I glamorously had room service by myself at the hotel . . . Tomorrow I fly back to London for a night, and then on to Seattle for about a […]

I’m in Luxembourg!

What do you do when you’re in Luxembourg right before Christmas? Eat all the cheese!!! First a delicious raclette with my business clients . . . . . . then a Mont d’Or, which is an entire little wheel of cheese that has been baked until melted, and into which you dip meats and potatoes. […]
