Hi guys

 

It maybe news to some but I'm still alive and kicking.

 

Currently, I'm enjoying my retirement from corporate life after being made redundant from JP Morgan Chase in January.  It happened about 3 days after I got back from Peru.  I'm pretty ecstatic about it.  I wasn't enjoying working for JPMC - or the whole concept of working to tell you the truth. 

 

Now I've got the opportunity to do some things I've always wanted to do. 

 

I spent February hanging out with a cute French Canadian girl I met on the tube, sleeping in late and packing up house.  It was amazing how quickly February passed by. 

 

March was a full on month doing a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) course.  I worked non stop day and night preparing for lessons and completing assignments.  I never realised it would be such hard work.  Still, it was worth it.  I'm now qualified to teach English (shudder). 

 

I've  also organised a 50 day tour of Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordon and Egypt starting 18  April.  Should be fun....provided the whole area doesn't go up in flames.

 

Catch up with you all soon.

Here's a picture of me at the Arcordia Xmas Party.  Check it out.

 

Also added:

Stay tuned in the next few weeks for:

  • Peru

  • Odessa

  • Motorcycling in Spain

  • Various parties.

Given, I have a bit of time on my hands over the next few weeks, I should be able to get them all up.
