I’m currently back out on the road again, working in remote communities in the Northern Territory. The wet season is just finishing up here and there are still a few storms and showers around making it fairly humid, especially in the afternoon. Still, there are worse workplaces I can think of. So, that’s why there are no pretty house pictures this week. Hopefully, all that is still happening while I am absent.
I had a wake up call this week. I lost my wallet.
Don’t worry, this has a good ending! Losing my wallet is not a good thing to do when travelling, as I need to show identification to get on the plane (remote areas don’t have the option of on-line check in) and I pay for most travel expenses by credit card. So there I was, remote location (check out Nhulunbuy on Google maps and you’ll see what I mean), no I.D. and I needed something that would allow me to get on the plane on Friday. Thankfully, I still had my phone – I would have had a melt-down if I had lost that! My phone is crucial to my work as a remote operator.
