Good things come to an end

The last 12 months have probably been the best in my life. I have visited over 30 countries on all continents except Antarctica, completed an MBA from a reputable institution, found a job and made friends along the way.

I am proud of this blog, and will cherish this record for the rest of my life. I have been thinking about the future of this blog for some time now and, sadly, decided that it would be best to conclude it now. My new life will no longer be blog-friendly because:

- I will no longer be studying at INSEAD
- I will no longer be visiting a different country every week
- The confidential nature of my work would make the postings frustratingly vague and unhelpful

For these reasons, this will likely be the final posting on this blog.

I would like to warmly thank my readership for your support and loyalty despite my sometimes irregular posting habits. I certainly wouldn’t have been as motivated and dedicated to the blog without you.

I was surprised to see how many “strangers” contacted me for information regarding INSEAD, travel or other topics, and it was always a great pleasure to respond to each of them. I will still receive the comments posted on the blog or the emails sent through it, and will continue to help any way I can.

Merci et adieu!

Olivier,

I have been following your adventures for the past year and have found it to be exciting, intriguing and all around fun. I'm sad to see it end, but I'm glad it was all for a great cause. I hope we get together soon and I wish you all the success you deserve! A bientot!

Salut,
Elle

Hi

Please remove my post from your blog.

I had written comments about Anuron and Rajat and that is proving hurtful to my reputation as well.

thanks
Kunal

I have asked you in a personal email to remove my comment on Anuron and Rajat, above. I had just started INSEAD and Anuron did sell his car to me but he did not have an idea about the car's condition. Also, being at INSEAD has given me a wider perspective on people and I have realised that Rajat may not be the kind of person I make him seem like in my post.

I request you again, to remove this post as this is harming my reputation more than the alumni's.

thank you
Kunal
