Carpe Diem

Today was my last day at my job as an airline pilot. I needed to give my company 3 months notice when I quit my job. It seems like such a long time ago.

I’m a little bit at a loss about what to do next, and about who I am, and what my role is in life. It was all grand and exciting when it was just a dream, but now its very real, and starting to sink home.

I’m going to miss my colleagues, who have become an extended family to me. And, yes, I’m going to miss my identity as an airline pilot. When I wake up tomorrow morning, who am I going to be? Still me, I hope, and ready to start anew. Carpe Diem.

Hi Ken,

It was a brave move and I'm sure you'll have many adventures along the way. Good for you for following your instincts! I wish you the best of luck and look forward to reading about your progress.

Hi Seb,

Thanks. Well, if it doesn't work out, I figure with the current worldwide shortage of experienced pilots, I can always go beg for my old job back if things get desperate.

Keep writing. I really enjoy your blog. IMHO, its one of the best sites for adventure photographers!

A good shot you got there. I enjoyed reading your adventure. Wanted to try on the Pulau Ubin trail myself too but has always being busy.

Thanks Henry,

I hope you manage to find some time to ride the trail. There have been more improvements to the trail over the past couple of weeks, so it is well worth a visit.

Keep in touch,
