A hell of a trip!

Posted on in Blog
Most of my trips starts with some reasonable planning; you have to identify the best flight, seats, airports, connection times, hotels, etc. The main idea is to be prepared for any surprise.


Sometimes surprises happen, and sometimes it can be great.

Flying to the Philippines for the first time I could never imagine how interesting this country can be. The biggest catholic country in the world, former US military base, colonized by Spain. The country is a paradise when considering beaches, however I had no time to go to any (Sometimes you have to work), however I could enjoy a little bit of history by going to Intramuros, the historic side of Manilla.

In the Philippines I could also tried some authentic Japanese food, which was really tasty.

On the way back from Philippines to USA I had a connection in Seoul, South Korea. I was expecting just a simple connection, however ICN airport is the second best airport in the world, and yes, the airport is great, and besides the comfort, agility and great services, the airport offers a free tour to some places. Being a History lover, I went to the Jeondeungsa Temple, from the 4th century. The place was breathtaking, not only for the beauty but also because it was -15C.

After the long connection I flew to Houston, and over there found out that a big running event was coming to Houston, It was the first time I ran 15K, now the next target is 21k.

Finally, I had another training week in Orizava – Veracruz MX. A very nice historic city with a huge Spanish influence. Some of the best restaurants I have ever been to are located in Orizaba.

  • It’s the most wonderful time of the year

    Posted on in Blog

    Christmas has always been my favourite time of the year. For years my parents worked hard to make it a magical time. I would struggle to sleep with excitement and in the hope of seeing Santa. Even after I found out the magic came from my parents, they always made sure it was a happy magical day.

    WEBINAR - Weld Log Module (Concluded)

    Posted on in

    The Weld Log module enables Companies to track welding carried out on a casting (unique ID/Serial Number), by Job Number or Part Number. This will record the welder name, position of the weld on the casting, type or welding rods used, batch(s) of weld rod, quantity (& Weight) of rods used. A weld map, or multiple maps if tracked by job or part, can also be attached to show visually where each weld occurred. The welder will have access to the welding specifications stored against the part to make sure the weld falls within one of the specifications.
