Konnichiwa from Pattaya

Just a quick line as ex Bibby Cadet/Engineer, been ashore since 1976.
Got back to sea in 2002 Sept.Norfolk Line 2years as Motorman.
Guys on ship kept saying -Go to the RFA jim as you will like it there!.
Ok so joined them in spring 2005, best move as now global again once trained up.

Was going to try ticket again this spring, but reckon 60+ is not really for me sailing, as sometimes demanding in various ways as we all know.

So still working hard, good employer, and enjoying travel on and off ships,at present in Thailand, and completed dive ticket in Koh Samui, but looking for new pad soon.

Keeping on trucking for the next two years-RFA, then if it is difficult to get teaching in Nihon then would like to try for Thailand.
Come on Goeff how are you good buddy :o)...
