BA was great as a first trip engineer apprentice.
2nd trip a visit to Cartagena, Colombia was very memorable
3rd trip, visited Bangkok, taking Atur gas to Vietnam in 1970 was memorable for other reasons, HK and Melbourne then Geelong as a base for a few months where we were taking AV Gas and Avtur to Pacific Islands (Fiji, N Caledonia, Noumea, Solomon Islands + a couple of other smaller islands) the visits to Suva were very the reverse of normal where the girls bought you drinks and you sat on their knee - tall lasses!!
Also visited NZ and really liked it so much, I emigrated 13 years later.
Also on that trip, we had a 2 month dry dock at Jurong and stayed in a hotel in town - that was awesome!
