Gran Canaria – Celebrating the Mini-Continent


In fact, all along, I have always felt it was probably the best decision I have ever made in my life, next perhaps to the one I have made 10 years later when, just recently, a bit over a month ago, I decided to make a move from IBM after 17 years of service in three different countries: The Netherlands, Ireland and Spain. It’s the second longest place I have ever lived in, apart from my family place, back in mainland Spain (León). Today is a special day for yours truly.

Secret of my (our) success

Viv Mcwaters

Other talented people I’d like to hang out with more are all over the planet - in Canada, Zambia, the US, England, Spain, Italy, Taiwan, New Zealand (and there’s a few others in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth…) But I digress.
