Varirata National Park

March 22, 2014

March 2014

Bush walk through Varirata National Park, 40 minutes drive uphill from Port Morseby. Great views. Heard and saw birds of paradise in the forest, impossible to photograph, they were too far and too fast….

Randonnée dans le parc national de Varirata, sur les hauteurs de Port Moresby (40 minutes de route). Vues superbes. Avons vu et entendu les fameux “birds of paradise” (oiseaux du paradis), mais impossible à photographier, ils étaient trop loin et trop rapides…

Tai’s Second Farewell

December 30, 2012


It is the second time that colleague Tai is leaving us. The first time was a year ago, when he still was in Houston. After only three months we  asked him to come and join us in Brisbane. We therefore wonder if this will really be the last time, there might be a ¨boomerang effect” bringing him back to us. So, as we say in French, ¨ce n’est qu’un au revoir

Team Build Up

June 22, 2012

Go-Kart Team Build Up

At Kingston Park Raceway, with colleagues. It was raining like hell. Never got so wet in my entire life. But it was great fun. Shall never forget. Very successful team build up.

Impossible to take photos of the race itself . Too much concentrated on the action, too much rain and on top of it it was dark. So here are some group photos instead, taken after the race

Peter, John K., Scott, Richard, Tai, Paul, John C., Michael B. and Jarod

Wet, wet, wet. Trying to warm up under the heater

i purchased a T-shirt, just to have something dry to wear

The official team photo

The winners and the looser

 We ended up in a South End restaurant, with our soaked clothes. Everyone started by ordering a cognac, to try and warm up
