You might think it weird to talk about curling just as Summer is about to, well, break out. And you would be right, of course. But then again, a lot of things in Luxembourg were weird in the past two or three months, so why stop now?
For many people the past two months of lock-down have only exacerbated that familiar feeling of being trapped (or cocooned, depending on your point of view) inside the expat bubble, with minimum interaction with the local population and the internet as the only lifeline to the civilisation as they know it. Mike Isenor is not one of those people.
Two-time Luxembourg curling champion is, like most Canadians, a thoroughly nice person, whose life took an unexpected turn on a European holiday many years ago, and landed him in this neck of the woods.
We talked about the epidemic and the general state of Luxembourg’s health system, big city vibe of a not-so-big European town, traffic and commute (obviously) as well as general tips on what to do and how to survive first contact with the country.
Oh, and curling. We talked about curling.
