It might be a week or so before my next post as I’m about to depart from the connected world for a bit. Internet availability in Borneo is expected to be patchy – that’s why they’ll benefit from more satellite communications.
If I manage to survive the jungle, the mosquitoes, leeches, snakes,spiders and the occasional Orang-utan I hope to surface eventually in Singapore.Then immediately travelling on to colder climes.
After having made some 6,000 flights I never really want to see another plane again. At least I usually manage to be asleep before they even push back from the stand.
That reminds me of the time I boarded the wrong plane in Stockholm and nearly spent Christmas in Helsinki instead of at home – but that’s another story in itself, involving a smoked leg of reindeer, a very rapid trot through Dutch customs and wrecking a Christmas day for a whole bunch of friends.
I might save that story for 25th December.
