After 16 years in Europe (10 years in Montpellier, France and 6 years in London, UK), I'm heading back to the Pacific Ocean that I left in 1996 from New Caledonia.
Montpellier was my student life, one of the most unforgettable time of your life, where you build strong friendships. Montpellier is also where I acquired all my IT skills.
London was my love life and career booster. I started with a job in Lidl store and I am now working as a CMS Developer for the Financial Times. I wouldn't have jumped that high would I have stayed in London. But the price to pay for was leaving a bunch of great friends and 300 days of sunshine a year behind.
Now I'm going to do it again. Leave a lot behind me and head towards new lands, but nearer to my starting point. I've spent such a great time and met such wonderful people here that it will be difficult, I don't realise it yet but I know it is. I will miss a lot but this move is the right decision for my family:
- better weather, more outdoors activity
- better education for the little one
- closer to my parents and the rest of the family. Also a bit closer for my wife to go back to Vietnam.
- back with some other friends
So on the 16th of July 2012, I will be heading down south to Kangarooland, in Casula, NSW not too far from Sydney.
I'm looking forward to meeting up with some Sydney Strobists and Ukulele players! So if you know something cool happening near Casula, NSW, please let me know!
