Celebrating My Birthday on the Cruise Vessel Celebrity Equinox
Hello Steemit Friends today is my birthday!
Location : Miami day 6 April ...
This port is very busy for us...we have embarkation of crew... provision...as an example I worked 14.5 h today.
So…as far as I know I am on this planet for about 3 decades and a little bit….
On 6th April 1988 I was born in an interesting part of Romania called Dobrogea.
On our map it looks like a fancy boot and I am exactly on its Achilles heel.
As the years pass I miss being a kid having no worry and just play all day.
The world is a scary place sometimes and as for me I feel all the time out of place so a walk back into the past just for a little while would be a delight.
OK so now I am 31 year old…What I want to do?
Well for this very year I plan to publish some books…yeah some books …not one but more.
I am really confident that I can get the work done until the year is over and publish them.
And basically that is it for now…being on the sea and working lets me with very little time to do something else.
I have a great team that works hard:
Here are some of them that I see them as my friends and family:
Mathew , a third officer from America, a very carrying and passionate person that works hard and very well in a team.
Maria, First Officer from Greece, a strong character and a very hard working lady. She had to overcome many things coming to the sea as the sea is still dominated by men, but she pushed on and became one of the top officers on board.
Kiriakos Chief Navigation a strong character and in the same time a patient mind as patience comes with experience. I first met him on my previous contract on Millennium.
In this photo you can see 2nd officer Donchev from Bulgaria, a hard worker and a team player and next to him is Adreea from Romania on her very first contract as a Deck Cadet (we call them apprentice officers) and of course AB Santos who is in the company for over 30 years now. I always say :
His age is my experience!
And of course Chief Officer Georgantas with whom I work now, A person passionate about his work and in his free time he is a cyclist and a windsurfer.
