The Dust of Two Deserts

(part 6 of 6. In transit)

back to the airport (see part 2 “The Nearly Terminal”)

126 .. Travelling light means that I carry just two pairs of shoes (a lightweight black leather business pair and a pair of comfortable running shoes)*

* After shooting video in both the Nevada and Gobi deserts, my runners were coated with multiple layers of fine dust. Trekking over a mountain to a remote Chinese village, rinsed them clean!

127 .. Commemorate your trip with photographs, but be selective. You have a large capacity analogue storage device in your head. It is preferable to remember, rather than abdicate in favour of a digital recording, or isolate yourself by constantly viewing your surroundings via a screen

128 .. Breathe.

If you can’t change it, or work around it, just chill and accept it!

There is no point having a heart attack over a long delay or even a 24 hour flight postponement. Attempt other routings or transport options. However, if none can be found, utilise the extra time to relax or explore some local hospitality. Enjoy the experience

Digital Tsunami provided an outstanding service throughout the whole web development process. Andrew spent extensive time early on to understand our business in order to provide additional conceptual and strategic contributions to the brand and corporate identity of Kinetic Defence Services to ensure the message was clear, precise and appealing to the target audience.

The development process was smooth and efficient and enabled us to have an input throughout to guarantee total satisfaction with the final look and feel of the site.
