Well it was bound to happen sooner or later! yes I’ve been called away to work, it’s only been 8 weeks at home, but I think the wife is happy to see the back of me!
I’m flying up to Aberdeen this afternoon, spend the night there and then off to Frankfurt, couple of hours in the bar, unless someone from work is reading this and then it’s a couple of hours reading the procedures, then a 4 hour flight to Israel. One of two things can happen now, either I stagger off the plane after too many G&T’s and it’s straight onto a fast boat or Helicopter to the rig, nether is good with a sore head, or I jump off the plane after a good nights sleep (the good thing about business class) and meet our contact who points out there has been a delay and we’ll be in a hotel for a couple of days. But this never happens the other way around.
Anyway enough of my ramblings, the photo below was taken through a helicopter window as we came in to land on the rig I will be spending the next 10 to 15 days or so on. Last time I was on this rig the internet was really bad so I apologize now if I don’t post, reply to twits, e-mails, and don’t get to look at your blogs.
P.S. I will put travel photo updates on Instagram @rigmover if anyone is interested.
