I'm on the road again

After more than 18 years in Europe, I am moving back to Canada and to a new job, next Friday.

It will be good to get back home and be closer to family and friends, but as always with these things, it is somewhat bittersweet because we will be leaving behind some great friends and colleagues out here.

Paris is one of the world's greatest cities, and to see the Eiffel tower every day on my way to work is something I will surely miss.

On the other hand, I am quite excited about being reunited with my sons and with the new job! I am joining a class organization and I look forward to meeting my new colleagues there and making new friends. There will be much work to do to complete the transformation of the IT of the Bank, and as IT is at the heart of Financial Services this promises to be interesting, challenging, and impactful.

There will be more to say in the coming weeks... stay tuned!

Double rainbow over Paris

doubleRainbow

OK, so I will not do the whole Internet meme thing about "oh my god, double rainbow what does it all mean", but...

On our way to our friend Caroline's yesterday night, it rained pretty suddenly... and just as suddenly, wham, the sun came out. We looked around for a rainbow and then suddenly there was this neat double rainbow over Paris.

My wife didn't have time to take the picture with the double rainbow with the Eiffel tower, but she did get the great "double rainbow above the Place d'Iena" picture that you can see above.

Must have something to do with the fact that in couple of weeks, we're going back to Canada after 18 years in Europe :-D
