Switching schools

My son has gone to 9 different schools in 5 countries in 10 years. Not only have the physical locations been many, the teaching languages have switched quite a few times too; Danish, German, English, Swedish, German / French, back to English and right now German again. I know – we are horrible parents! I […]

Calling Lost Expats Worldwide

Autumn is a time of change. In weather, in nature, in us – we make a few changes in our homes and wardrobes to greet and get ready for winter. And so autumn is a good time to change for Clew as well. We wish to be not just Calling Luxembourg Expat Women, but indeed […]

Home in an unexpected place

If you had asked me 18 months ago where I would like to live, Berlin would not have been on my list. We knew it was long overdue to leave Luxembourg, and different possible destinations kept coming up. Berlin was one of them and to be honest I said no to this. I am open to […]

Blue sky and a new school

Things happen in a mother’s heart when her kid goes to school for the first time. Many of you have already experienced this. I got to live it for the first time this year. Or feel it.

After a wonderful first ‘Happy Yogis Evening’ (HYE), a new HYE will take place this month in Luxembourg City, at LeneLife @ Le Bec Fin. This will be a great opportunity to socialise with fellow yogis and yoga instructors, find out more about yoga, and indulge in a selection of delicious food.

Leaving Luxembourg: Lisa’s favourites

Like every expat who has moved countries a few times, also I get asked – so which is your favorite country so far? And my answer is always a smile and the well rehearsed: Well, every place has its ups and downs… And every country we’ve lived in has a special place in my heart. […]

Leaving the linguistic smorgasbord

It dawned on me soon after arriving in Estonia this month. We’re not in Luxembourg anymore. No siree, Sigefroid. Unlike the Grand Duchy, there’s no linguistic smorgasbord or palette of patois to choose from. Therefore, kiss good-bye any signs like this:

Smart-phone-less (a wordplay)

Ok, I think I just became the last person amongst my friends and acquaintances who does not own a smartphone. For the moment I own an old, old Nokia classics, made ages ago, which does not look too different from my first purchase about 16-17 years ago – a shiny Motorola the size of half […]

The importance of away time for women

Clew’s Miranda shows you Lëtzebuerg is creative in her monthly column LëtzCreate, but she’s also a creative coach, with her own inspiring blog Create & Connect. Clew borrows from her blog:  It is quite normal to go on off-sites for work: companies offer away days for staff team building and to clarify goals. It got […]
