Lines are not always clearly defined between work and life.  I’m a great believer in mixing the two to a certain degree – but not all the time.  Photography allows me to do this when I’m traveling for work.  On my current business trip, I’m visiting customers in west Wales; the first time I’m this far west on the British Isles.

Over the past three years, I’ve visited Sens about eight times.  Most of my trips were in winter, which meant it was dark when I left the office in the evening. Other towns have had a better share of my photography time, and I want to change this over my next few visits.

Dubai is awake again.  Whilst it’s still not to the Dubai I knew before the recession, there are plenty of positive signs.  I used the Sheikh Zayed road to measure the activity level on a previous trip.  This time I was actually stuck in traffic on a few occasions.  There are still unfinished buildings with no obvious signs of any work in progress; but roads, shops and restaurants are reasonably busy.  With the summer heat, malls feel busier and I’m told hotels are taking more and more bookings for the summer.

Work-wise, some of the projects previously on hold have been dusted off and are taking shape – even if only on paper.  In all my meetings, I sensed a readiness to do business again.

I hope this continues and I wish Dubai all the best.

Pioneers of the future of the LNG business have been showing off their vessels and floating plants.  They’re presenting new technology in what will be the new world of gas.  Our technology for Loading Arms is second to none – so companies looking for high safety and reliability come to us.  It was a great feeling to see the models of these companies with our loading arms included.  These have all been ordered and the vessels are being built all over the world.

That’s all I’ve done today! We’re exhibiting at Gastech in Abu Dhabi.  Our stand is looking good after our final touches yesterday.  I say final touches but it took us until half past eight in the evening to finish off.  The nice little model you see above was damaged during transit.  It took three hours to fix it!  Business has been bad this year – so this is a good time for this event.

Like many things, The Exhibition Centre in Abu Dhabi is about twenty years ahead of Kuwait!  I love the scale this city works on.  It’s time we started to take the same giant steps!

For some time now, I’ve not travelled as often as I would expect.  Some trips were cancelled, others postponed.  It has been great staying home, but it’s now time to play catch-up.  

The airports I’ve been through today, Kuwait, Dubai and Paris, were all surprisingly quiet.  This photograph was taken this morning at Kuwait International Airport.
