The GR20 is a long hike that crosses the Mediterranean island of Corsica from the north to the south. It is considered as one of the most difficult GR (“Grande Randonnée”) footpath because of its steep and rocky paths. There are some sections with chains, rock climbing and footbridges.
The whole trail is about 180 km long with about 12,000m of elevation gain and can be extended with some variant routes and beautiful summits.

Having worked in North America for many years prior to joining a Cloud consulting company in France helped me see how far behind we were in terms of cloud adoption in France. But during these 3 years I really had the opportunity to see AWS, GCP and Azure convincing all the large French companies and the cloud becoming more mature and an acceptable and safe option.

Climbing Mont-Blanc (4810m) was something close to my heart since I did Tour du Mont-Blanc last summer. It is something that must be planned ahead as you must find a guide (highly recommended) and book refuges (highly demanded). Our guide was suggesting several summits for acclimatation but we picked Gran Paradiso (4061m) in Italy which look vertiginous with an airy ridge at the summit!
