Setting Off for Verdun

Ah, Verdun! The name itself evokes images of historic battles and scenic French landscapes. But for me, it was the setting of a rather ordinary mission: a real estate photoshoot.

The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and I was cruising down the highway, camera gear in tow. Verdun was calling, and I was answering with a hearty “Oui!”

The apartment I was shooting was quaint but charming. A little nook of coziness in the newly build building outside of Verdun city centre. The sunlight streamed through the windows, casting a golden glow on the wooden floors. Click, click, click – my camera captured it all. Mission accomplished.

Luxembourg’s Traffic Tango

As I packed up my gear and bid adieu to Verdun, I was already dreaming of a smooth ride home. But alas, Luxembourg had other plans. Traffic, as far as the eye could see. Cars from Belgium, Germany, and who knows where else, all converging in a mechanical ballet of brake lights and honking horns.

Google to the Rescue: The Shortcut Saga

Just when I thought I’d be stuck in this vehicular vortex forever, Google Maps chimed in. “We found a shortcut that can save 10 minutes, tap yes to accept” it said, like a digital guardian angel. “Why not?” I thought, and veered off the beaten path.

The road was narrow, the terrain uneven, but oh, the views! Rolling fields stretched out on either side, dotted with wildflowers and framed by the setting sun. It was as if Mother Nature herself had curated this detour just for me. Too bad I didn’t have time to take some photos!

The Epilogue: Verdun, I’ll Be Back

As I finally emerged from this unexpected scenic route, I couldn’t help but feel grateful. Grateful for the work that takes me to new places, for technology that knows when I need an escape, and for the beauty that lies in the most unexpected corners.

So, here’s to Verdun, to real estate, and to the unplanned adventures that make life truly magical. Verdun, you haven’t seen the last of me. And Luxembourg, next time, maybe clear up the traffic, will you?
