Monday 9th January – reconnecting E2 and H1 and phoning home

Today having aligned module E2 we pulled it onto H1, and reconnected the Trelleborg.

Tonight I spoke to my youngest son, Daniel, as tomorrow he leaves to go traveling, starting in Thailand then onto Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia and then maybe New Zealand and Australia.  It’s not something I ever thought about at 18, as it was always about further qualifications to start a career. However I am proud that he has the confidence and independence to do his own thing. So I sent my love and asked him to stay in touch so we know he is ok. This might seem obvious, however most lads do not see the need to communicate at all unless they need something or it’s gone horribly wrong!  In between these times it would be nice to know where he is in the world and what he’s exploring! I followed up our chat with some photos from down South.  He said that he had set up the digital photo frame that I gave my wife Luci at Christmas, to pick up photos uploaded to the web from wherever he is during his travels.  This sounds easier for him and more likely than a call!
