So March has been pretty hectic, what with the launch of the new WebAnalytics.be site, Spring Newsletter (sign-up) and the extensive travels 😉
Apart from the fact that I am now spearheading OX2‘s Web Analytics activities in France – which has me travelling back and forth between Grenoble and Brussels – I had the privilege of attending the Google Analytics Authorized Consultant (GAAC) training, along with Aurélie and Claudiu. The training took place in Dublin, Ireland, in Google’s European headquarters.
Read what Aurélie had to say about the event.
While i’m not authorized to disclose any material discussed in the training, i’ll leave you with a good reason to apply for a position at Google HQ in Dublin: sushi ^^
Motivation is key! 🙂
On another food note, I had a unique culinary experience at the Domaine du Colombier, near Montélimar, deep in nougat country in the South of France. This classy provençal inn was already worthy of interest but recently went bankrupt, very much to my dismay as their lavender crème brulée was out of this world.
I then heard the wonderful news that former employees of the Pourcel brothers (of Paris Maison Blanche fame) purchased the inn and took it several steps further in quality and class. With two amazing bottles of Condrieu and St Joseph, we enjoyed this divine meal and got ready for the world to end, with no regrets whatsoever 😉
I am now about to step out to finally buy my birthday present (which I share with Cécile) : a conservation standalone winecellar. I’m trying to find a model that’s not only a refrigeration unit, but also a humidity controller. But those are expensive so finding the right model is going to take time…
On another travel-related note, Ryanair is cancelling its tri-weekly charter flights between Brussels/Charleroi and Grenoble. Fair enough, that flight route was primarily set-up to accomodate our British ski fans but it had become a sort of ritual for me 😉 I guess I now have to fall back to the TGV and Thalys scheme 😛 bleh bleh bleh, French transportation sucks 😛
comments are always welcome, especially if they don’t incite me to buy Viagra or browse to a Russian porn site. Thanks Akismet 😉
