And we came alongside in Den Helder

It's definitely not a place for sightseeing, nevertheless, it's a little cosy city. It's a famous Dutch port and we were there for a port call on out way to North sea. You have to know that port calls are normally the worst days of your job as in most of the cases they carry the biggest amount of non-stop work for you. But just the fact that you can finish your work, go out and actually see people you've never seen before living a normal life out there is well worth it, for that reason alone i like port stays.

Agra...And a really real wonder!

Incredible India! I was so pissed off by it i wanted to kinda teleport from the vessel straight home without passing by, ending up crew changing in a small city, with nothing to do, nowhere to go, shabby little hotels and traveling for ages to get in and out of that place on the noisiest planes ever!

It's Dubai again

I say again because i've been here before, this was actually the first destination my work sent me to, and it was to get my induction training. The spirit of Dubai has not changed since, still feels artificial, has an ever increasing number of skyscrapers and malls. They've been also building a lot of new hotels, a lot of new entertainment places, etc...

Grown up? me?

Finally New year 2007/2008 and finally i got the 5 week vacation i was waiting for, it always feels so good with one of these.

Not much happening, relaxation, meeting all the friends...generally nice. Add to that the nice celebration of New year at home with the family :)

But there was one special thing about those particular 5 weeks.
I got engaged! Of course to Erik, what kind of question is that?
