Slovakia Day 1…

That’s day 1 over as far as teaching is concerned. The audience is quite a diverse mix. Everything from 6 months to 10+ years of Oracle experience and from variety of countries too. I’ve even got a member of Oracle staff in the group. I wonder if he’s a spy… 🙂

It’s always dangerous to start getting too analytical about the lessons part way through course, so I will leave that until after I finish tomorrow.

I probably should go out and do some sightseeing now, but I think I’ll probably get some food and come back to the hotel and collapse. 🙂

Slovakia Day -1

I got to Slovakia with no major trauma.  I also had enough time to have a quick look round. As always, I used the shotgun approach. Several shots of each scene in the hope something would come out looking OK. 🙂

Not sure if I’ll have time to do any more looking around. The schedule is pretty tight for the next 2 days and I leave straight after finishing the second day. Better than nothing though.

It’s a Sunday so the streets are pretty quiet except for tourists.

Cheers

You know you’ve travelled too much when…

You know you’ve travelled too much when…

  1. You are asleep in the bath while your taxi is waiting outside to take you to the airport.
  2. At the check in desk you can’t remember where you are going.
  3. You can’t find your flight on the departure board because you’ve forgotten it’s a connecting flight.
  4. The computer equipment in duty free looks tempting.

All of these have happened to me this morning… 🙂

I’m in the airport on my way to Bratislava (Slovakia) to teach a 2 day Oracle University course. In about an hour I have to get on to a flight to Zurich, then on the Vienna, then I have a taxi ride to Bratislava. As it happens, this is much quicker and about a quater of the price of flying to Bratislava from Birmingham…

It’s got to be about 12 years since I was was in Zurich. Pity I can’t have a look round to see how much it’s changed. I was in Vienna last year and I loved it, but once again, I won’t get to see any of it, except through the window of a taxi.

Please let me sleep on the plane…

Cheers

Update: I’m in Bratislava now. No sleep yet. 🙂
