This is Paul. He is from Holland. He has actually just left here last Saturday. He stayed for a month. He was very funny and had a perfect Dutch accent. He usually spends about 6months working and then the rest of the time travelling.
It was sad to see him go as he really made everyone laugh and we got on really well. He was in my group and we started training almost at the exact same time.
Paul left for work in Thailand, he is a underwater construction engineer, I think. He works on oil rig maintenance, diving with aqua gear and sometimes works blind under instruction cleaning or putting together piping and parts. I think he often has to go in decompression tanks. It sounded rather dangerous, but I think that’s just Paul. When he was younger his hobby was to climb cranes with his friends, scramble alongto the end and hang off them! Crazy!
He was only here for a month and in the beginning found it quite difficult: authority and picking up movement. But by the end he had improved so much I was really happy for him. He didn’t want to leave and may come back in again when the weather is a little warmer and if they get rid of the dust in the training halls!
