Well I've been sent on a 5 month contract to Sweden
by my employer (Ericsson).

It was a bloody long an uncomfortable flight.

It's below zero here and with snow everywhere it looks really picturesque!
I'll have to post some pics.

Anyway once the contract is up, I'm taking 3 months leave to tour around
Europe by campervan with my wife who will come accross at that time
- a driving holiday around Europe will be a real adventure!

In the mean time I hope my wife dosn't thrash the XR6 too much!

Jake.

Jake, thats so Cool

Seriously, 5 months away from the family is a tough ask, I hope it goes quick for you. Then 3 months of adventure around Europe will be a blast. I guess we'll see you sometime in NOVEMBER!!!
BTW, looks like you'll miss the Heathcote meet being considered for May. I wonder if your wife will fill in for you:p

Good luck, stay warm!

Jake what do you do for Ericsson (if you don’t mind me asking).
They are one of the companies that I’ll probably be looking at for job placement/work experience for 4th year uni.
Cheers.

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Capser: Sorry to miss heathcote, let me know how you go.

Theman: Ericsson's core business is telephony switching. They provide equipment for comanies like Telstra, Vodafone etc. They design new software features for the networks, maintain the hardware and do emergency support, and offcourse new product design.

Delboy: No I didn't go business class - not happy, especially since I'm 6'3" !

Well with the frequent flyer points you just earned, get an upgrade on the way home.

Free Beer is great, just keep buzzing for another one, I got VB on the way to holland, but the way back I had drink tiger beer or fosters is all they had, but i drank every one they had, hey it was free its a long flight so what the hell :0)

Have fun, get along to amsterdam at night, just watch were you go, get a local to take you.

Oh and behave yourself (we wont tell if you don't) ........... LOL
