Welcome to my web site

I live near Brussels, the Capital of Belgium and of Europe, and I am retired, although I still work from time to time as a chemical engineer and consultant. You will find more about me here!

From 1993 to 1998, I was living in Ferney-Voltaire (France, near the Swiss border) and I worked for the United Nations in Geneva (Switzerland). The city of Ferney-Voltaire didn't have a web site: I therefore developed a guide to this city. I have also created one for a French village that bears my name: Orban, near Albi (Tarn), and for a Spanish village with the same name: Orban in Galicia.

One of my hobbies is aviation, and particularly commercial airliners. Another hobby of mine is photography. Finally, I am interested in the roots of my family and in the etymology of my surname.

Owing to all my centres of interest, my site has several parts:

Another page lists my favourite links in fields not related to the ones above.

And finally, you are invited to post to my blog.
