Chuc Mung Nam Moi!

It is time to officially wish the New Year welcome and lets hope it will be as interesting or even more as the year that passed. We ended it with a highlight, if not, the highlight of the year. A helicopter ride to three oil rigs in a day, yay! All buckled up and riding along the coast of Vung Tau shooting out the open and secured door. A great experience. It is not an understatement to say that I love my job.

This is my second time in a helicopter, the first time took place in Norway, on top of one of the glaciers. I was an apprentice at that time and we used the helicopter as a prop for a winter fashion shoot. As we wrapped it up, the helicopter pilot said we still had time left so we went for a spin around. Hovering in front of the blue glacier ice was a highlight. Beautiful sight.

This time the helicopter was bigger and the ride longer. We were lucky with the weather, we had been warned that the forecast was not good, the wind particularly strong and that may prevent us from going.

Here’s one of the shots from the ride, enjoy!
