Matthew Petroleum Notes

THE TRAVELLER

BUSINESS TRAVEL is an important part of NDE, inspection and integrity jobs. To be taken seriously as a true traveller, you’d be expected to be a member of The Travellers Club formed in London in 1826 in Pall Mall. You’d also need to carry letters like KCMG FRSA DSO HON.LLD after your name, to get in the club in the first place. We’ve asked for evidence of these but our TRAVELLER hasn’t got back to us yet, claiming lost computer files and the GDPR regulations or something.

The travellerWhat we do know about our TRAVELLER is that he has worked as permanent ex-pat in integrity roles for 20 years, a travelling ‘temporary’ ex-pat for another ten and taken numerous short term overseas engineering jobs in between. He has been in a plane crash, a refinery explosion, lost in the desert, and in the jungle, and was once kidnapped and held to ransom by his own armed guard for 10 days. With more air miles than an astronaut, his contributions to our website are a travel lesson to us all.

About ME

This all started with a suggestion from another member of our website contributors. After a lively late-evening discussion the way forward was agreed unanimously. You, the valued visitor to the Matthews Integrity Hub: HEAD OFFICE website deserves the absolute best in unproven and unjustified travel advice I can offer you based on my experiences across the globe. There’s just so much wisdom I want to pass on. Have you thought for example about?

The travellerI don’t just travel of course, I work as well. Travel brings understanding and humanity, the voice of experience of others smoothing off the expansive thinking of our younger years. It did it for me. Allow me to share it with you in my Travel Club NDE Supervision article on the NDE OFFICE webpage. Read it slowly and enjoy it.

A warm welcome and farewell from The TRAVELLER (must go…. just off to the airport)
