Mavic Drones Maiden Flight

Just managed to put together this quick video from the footage taken from the maiden flight of the DJI Mavic Drone now nicknamed (Hadold) by my son. This was the first for me flying any drones and the really one of the first times in me editing video.

I have to say that it was good fun to fly and as long as you read through all the recommendations and all the guides a very easy drone to fly.

Hope that you like the footage and i am sure there will be more to come soon.


A Reflection on the last few weeks with work


So this morning i am in a slightly reflective mood, I have to say that I am very lucky to have to job that enables me to travel and visit events like I do. As you have probably seen in the last few posts i that i have put up recently I have been some what busy travelling around although to some great destinations.

The other week I managed to spend a week in Sweden, which by all accounts wasn’t to bad. There is not many jobs that would send you abroad and treat you as well as what I was treated.
I managed to get some great photos and meet some nice people, I can also tick another Scandinavian country of my list leaving just one more to go (Finland).

Then last Friday I managed to spend the day taking in probably my favorite view by sitting at the top of the Emeriates Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, on a serious note though I was there to do work. It was actually an event hosted by ESET but without the hard sell which was great. There was a couple of speakers that really had you thinking about privacy on the internet and some interesting points on security in general when it comes to mobile devices and IT.

Over all I feel that i am privileged to have a job which enables me to do such things and I just wanted to post something to say that i am truly grateful for these opportunities that i have.

It just goes to show that with a bit of hard work and tenacity you can get to where you want to. Although I feel this journey still has a long way to go.


Things I have to do for Work #Gothenburg

Ok, I have had a fun filled last few days working at the Thermo Fisher LSG EMEA Commercial awards in Gothenburg.

Working as IT support for the team I have met some great people and been kept very busy but also been spoilt with all the food and way too much coffee.

Although I worked along with my colleagues some long hours we also managed grab a few pictures all be it from in and around the hotel.

The hotel that we stayed at was Gothia Towers in Gothenburg, it is located directly opposite a Theme park which is something a bit different.

Below is a picture from outside the Tower looking back up at one of two of the walk ways between the towers which has a glass floor.

Below here is a picture looking at the outside swimming pool which is located on the 20th floor of the building. It protrudes out from the building and made completely of glass.

The image below was form one of the nights out to a themed style restaurant that caters for all kinds of tastes from Chinese to Italian. It was the one night that we were taken out of the hotel to a different location.

Next we have a picture below from the awards itself. It was an amazing venue and the events team did an amazing job of the layout, staging and the organization.

Finally this picture was taken from my hotel bedroom looking down the road. Nothing more to it than that other than the scenery all around the hotel was just stunning.
