FCO Project Travel Log

It’s been a while since I finished contracting for the FCO on a worldwide deployment project. It was great whilst it lasted. Being sent around the world, flying and staying non-economy. I’m not smug, I’m just saying that I really appreciated it.

For the record

Highlights: jetskiing and snorkelling off Tobago; the Astros’ baseball at the Minute Maid Stadium in Houston; walking around Petra and Wadi Rum; floating in the Dead Sea; returning to India, the bar at the back of an A380. and as strange as it may seem – working hard – putting in silly hours to get the job done.

Lows: Being away from the family.

Offers for contracts of a similar nature are welcomed.
