Back from Spain. It went really well. Really great people, and it was cool helping to support technically all these guys who are so excited by what they're doing.
Quite a surprise that some friends from Cyprus were particpants at the conference! So it was quite cool meeting up with them!
We've been back a week now. Becky was with some friends down south, and I was up in Carlisle finishing off some projects, and then we met up again on Friday, here at the Quinta.
Last time I was here, was for a few days break after my first 2 years on Doulos. I'm now here with Becky for a couple of days debrief with our home-office, and talking to some of the new people who are joining the company in september about life on board the ships.
It's again quiet, relaxing, and also very good hanging out with some of my friends from the Doulos who are living and working here now.
I managed to spend catch lunch with my brother and some friends in Birmingham on the way down.
Here's a crazy story:
Trying to buy tickets to get here, straight from Carlisle to Quinta would cost 40 pounds+... but if I booked Carlisle to Birmingham, and then Birmingham to Quinta, it cost 26.
I do NOT understand why. I blaim computers. They're evil. It's all a conspiracy.
We only have a few weeks more at Carlisle, for now, and hope to fly to Cyprus in about a month. Probably.
Then, hopefully, God willing, etc, to come back here for a few years starting some time in the summer.
We'll see how that all goes.
