Holiday from Hell
We recently set off for the Gold Coast for a couple of weeks of well-earned holiday.
I’d pictured the idyllic setting in my mind. . . that first morning cuppa beside the van, looking out over tranquil waters under infinite blue skies; connecting with family; enjoying sunset beers at the waters edge with not a care in the world.
Fast forward to the harsh reality: 10 rainy days; a mysterious and very, very expensive engine problem; a vehicle that’s just out of warranty; a massive hailstorm; and a hail damaged hire car.
So glad to get back to work this week for a break from it all!
We’ve all had those sorts of experiences, where life doesn’t work out the way you dreamed it would. The secret is to plan for the best but be prepared for when things don’t go the way we’d hoped.
In a sense, that’s what QER’s project is all about – making sure Australia is prepared to deal with our future fuel needs.
We don’t know exactly what the future will hold. We know that there will be new technologies and new fuels, but we know that it’s going to take a long time before we can replace our current transport fuels.
In the meantime our plan is to rely on imports from across the world and as I learned on my recent holiday – things don’t always go to plan.
