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. 🙂
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.
You know you’ve travelled too much when…
- You are asleep in the bath while your taxi is waiting outside to take you to the airport.
- At the check in desk you can’t remember where you are going.
- You can’t find your flight on the departure board because you’ve forgotten it’s a connecting flight.
- 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…
Update: I’m in Bratislava now. No sleep yet. 🙂
