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 […]

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 […]
