Five Years Later…

Five years ago, on this exact date, around this same time as now I walked out of a room in De Kleetlaan 6 in Diegem near Brussels feeling humbled, but not humiliated after taking my CCIE Service Provider lab exam for the first time.

I walked down the pathway to the hotel, where I happen to be right now (NH Hotel) and had a crocodile steak for dinner. In couple of hours from that moment, I found out I became a CCIE #18427 on my first attempt.

Today, exactly five years from that moment at almost the exact spot, I’m helping 12 other engineers fulfill their dream of becoming a CCIE by teaching a CCIE bootcamp.

What a professional journey last five years have been!

She became She only a couple of weeks later. Soon, we’ll be three :-).

  1. I hope to be able to write my CCIE success story soon, then who knows where I will be in 5 years time, thanks for the inspiration.


  2. Congrats :)

    Soon… One of these days. Just…need…time…
