Life Taking Over in Luxembourg

Wow, I would never have imagined that I wouldn’t get around to writing another entry for this blog for nearly six months. I absolutely underestimated what it meant to move to a new city, start a new job and settle in. 

Esch-Sur-Sûre - Luxembourg
Since starting in my new position in March, this seems to be the first time that I have come up for air. I have had an amazing journey for the last few months. I tackled the challenges of suddenly working as an online marketing professional in a global company, went apartment hunting, explored Luxembourg City, my new hometown, and went on trips which took me as far as Chicago.

While I will continue to re-orientate myself towards this new stage in my life for some time, I finally feel like I have reached a stage where I can pick up my writing pen again. And I can tell you, my fingers have been itching for digital ink and paper in the last few months. Yet I was lacking the motivation to sit down and put the right phrases to the stories swirling through my mind. Instead, I filled notebooks with my plot bunnies, did research for “Chameleon”, visited friends, met new people, searched for and indulged in new experiences. It also doesn't hurt that Luxembourg has amazing landscapes and a host of castles to offer. In other words, I just let life take over and realised that I have been missing out on some things while worrying about finding a job last year.

However, now I’m back. So get ready to hear more frequently from me. In the next few entries, I will try to fill the gap between my last entry and this one by telling you about some of my experiences since moving to Luxembourg. Until then…Arwuar :)
