Leaving America

My temporary re-assignment to the US is ending this week; time to think about what I liked.

I believe the greatest thing was to experience a different culture together with my family. I also learned how fast time passes by.

I’ve been traveling quite a bit in my life but I never stayed an extended period in a foreign culture and it was always difficult to combine such trips with my social life.

California for us was great; it was amazing to experience the vibe of Silicon Valley. I enjoyed lots of mexican food, worked with hardware in the Techshop, had the opportunity to join several Java User Groups meetings and EclipseCon. I also loved biking to work and the mild climate.

Lake Tahoe, Napa Valley and Yosemiti are great places to visit.

I also met lot of interesting people; both at work and privately.

This was fun.

  1. Hello Lars Vogel,
    Welcome back to America :), I’ve researched international culture out of curiosity. Just want to thank you for having a very helpful user-friendly information on Java, Eclipse and Mascot (etc.) there are so many.
