Radim is Back: A Recap of Six-Months Abroad

I’ve returned from my six-month sabbatical and I’m energized and inspired to continue leading the Caron team as we embark on another successful year together. The main purpose of my trip was to focus on my family, but throughout my journey I had the opportunity to observe urban conditions, buildings and monuments around the world.

When I was younger, I used to practice architectural paparazzi, going out of my way to see buildings by famous and recognized architects. As I’ve grown older, I have become more interested in regular building patterns and small local gems which are well-detailed and catch my eye. I’m a firm believer in traveling beyond your hometown as there are lessons to be learned and comparisons to be made. It can lead to “Aha” moments of innovation. My travels were a kaleidoscope of views and impressions blurred together. I’ve done my best to combine six months of travel in my recap below and welcome the opportunity to share more about my experiences over coffee at our office.
