From Vancouver to Whistler

Last year, after a long ride on a bus from Vancouver Airport to Whistler, I discovered that a seaplane service existed, and decided to try it this year.

I had never been on a seaplane before, I heard that the view would be beautiful, and I was looking forward to a 35 min flight instead of a two-hour ride.

I took a few photos. To be fair, they barely render the beauty of the sights, taken with a phone from a tiny plane undergoing pretty sustained vibrations and bumps, but here they are anyway.

Day 81

My sabbatical leave is almost finished, with three days left and a deep dive back into the world of Automattic next Monday, when I’ll have the immense pleasure to meet my 600 colleagues face to face, many for the first time, in Canada.

That’s a pretty intense way to go back after such a long time, but I was given the opportunity of easing smoothly back into “professional” mode by attending the Mind the Product workshops and conference today and tomorrow!

So, here I am, back in London, looking forward to learning as much as possible, while subtly shifting my brain structure in preparation for next week.
