A childhood friend, Martin, suggests me to go to Aletsch Glacier, the largest glacier in the Alps, with him. Martin takes up Randomanie, a website who organizes treks in Switzerland, and France too.

So Jean-Baptiste and me went there, it was a great trek, I really would like to thank Martin for his organization. He has published a summary on his website.

As usual, you can find my pictures on my dedicated gallery.

Last Friday, two english friends, Martin and Chris visited me in Geneva. I travelled with them during around two weeks in New Zealand, we had great time together ! How lucky I am, during 2 days, I was invited by them in Verbier. We did skiing and snowboarding…british people are always funny in skiing 🙂

Verbier is one the biggest ski resort in Switzerland, very famous for tourists. But I never thought to see so many british people 🙂 Many years I didn’t return to Verbier, but it’s crazy, that’s a british town in the middle of Switzerland 😉

Anyway, I spent two wonderful days, so I really want to thank them for their invitation :

Thank you guys ! See you soon in England !

As usual, few pictures are available here.

La sécurité informatique étant l’une de mes passions, je ne pouvais passer à côté de l’événement 1 de ce début d’année 2008, qui est plus en Suisse Romande ! Des amis 2 de la société SCRT à Lausanne organisent un coucours, Insomni’Hack, de Ethical Hacking le 8 février prochain.

Etant donné que le concours s’effectuera dans les locaux de SCRT, il faut biensûr s’inscrire. C’est gratuit, alors si vous aimez la sécurité informatique, le hacking, etc. n’hésitez pas, inscrivez-vous !

Tout comme un autre spécialiste du domaine qui prépare certaines épreuves, je serais de la partie !

  1. Il faut biensûr relativer un peu 🙂

I wish a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2008 !

My wishes for 2008 :

  • Passing the TOEIC exam
  • Passing at least the LPI-1 and LPI-2 certification
  • Following a IT security conference / training
  • Travelling to visit different friends around the world (England, Sweden, Norway, France, China, Japan, Vietnam, Taiwan or Singapore)

This year, I decided to go 10 days on swiss mountains for rexaling after a crazy December month at work. It was great for many reasons :

  • Snowboard : I bought a new snowboard from Head.
  • Snow : few days before Christmas, it snowed about 2 meters of powder !
  • Sun : on 10 days, I had 9 days of sunny weather !
  • Friends : few friends came to visit me during Christmas or New Year.

Many pictures about this short holiday in Crans-Montana are available.

After Chris last year, a second friend, Naru from Japan, has visited me in Switzerland during few days. We travelled a lot in only 4 days, he was tried every night, but I’m sure he really enjoyed his trip in my country.

I was very happy to receive him, I tried to do my best after he received me in Japan last year.

You can find few pictures from Leysin, where we did mountain biking with my brother.

Who is the next visitor ? 🙂

After a great Lake Parade 2006, I also decided to go to the Lake Parade 2007. The parade was good, but less people than last year. Almost 400’000 people and 15 lovemobiles !
My new gallery is available here.

You will tell me…one more weekend in Crans-Montana..and I will answer you…that’s true, but different 🙂
I invited two friends (Thi and Thao), who have never been to the Swiss mountains. They work with me in the same company, but in Vietnam. During one month, they are staying in Switzerland, in the same office than me.
So it was a good opportunity for them to discover a new region (Valais) in Switzerland, to see new sightseeing views, to eat new food (Thao : how was the snow ? 😉) and to try new drinks (not really :).
We did snowshoe near Crans. It was also the first time for me in Crans, so I discovered few places that I have never been in skiing or snowboarding. Lucky, because the weather was very good !
I’ve really enjoyed this weekend, great moment, lot of fun ! Thank you for them to accept my invitation [1]
They also cooked a small soup at evening, so I would like to thank them for it, good opportunity to try some vietnamese food 😉

A new idea for my next trip…

Notes

[1] For your information, they are so busy, many colleagues wanted to invite them 😉
