The Camel guy going on APAC tour this August

Tomorrow I will be leaving for a tour in the APAC region where I am going to spread the words about agile integration using Apache Camel and Kubernetes and OpenShift.

I have plotted my destinations in the map below


The first stop is Tokyo where I will arrive on this Saturday August 5th (11 hour flight). I will then be jet-lagged and a bit tired so I will take it easy on Saturday.  On Sunday I plan to polish my presentations, and then visit some spots in Tokyo.

Monday and Tuesday are full day workshops. Red Hat has posted information about these workshops on the registration page for the Sydney and Melbourne events in case you are interested. I am not aware of any registration page for Tokyo which was quickly fully booked so we had to do a 2nd day as well.

On Wednesday I do have some time in the morning and afternoon to see a bit more of Tokyo before I will travel to Sydney (10h flight) where I arrive August 10th Thursday morning. In the evening I will attend and speak at the Sydney meetup. So if you are in this area you are very welcome to come by, as I love chatting with fellow developers and possible Camel users.  Then we have the full day workshop on Friday 11th.

On Saturday the 12th is my first leisure day where I have booked the bridgeclimb tour at 10am. If I am up early in the morning I will go see the opera house (as it was designed by a Danish architect) and the viewpoint of the harbour from the botanic garden. In the afternoon I will go to The Rocks for a cup of coffee and/or beer(s). I am in talks with a few Camel users from a Sydney office whom want to meet there for some drinks. You are welcome to join us there, you can reach out to me on my email or twitter etc.

On Sunday I travel to Melbourne. On Monday 14th I plan to run the F1 circuit track in Albert Park. If all goes well then I will run several rounds so I can do a half marathon distance. The following day we have a full day workshop in Melbourne. At this time of writing there is a potential meetup in Melbourne happening as well on the evening of Tuesday 15th. They are currently finding a venue.

On Wednesday I travel to Wellington where we have two full day workshops on Thursday and Friday.

Saturday 19th I have a full day in Wellington where I plan to walk the city and see various stuff. And see if I can recall some of the places I visited 15 years ago when I backpacked New Zealand and Australia.

I then fly to Auckland on Sunday 20th August and have a mini vacation there until Wednesday where I travel to USA (12 hour flight). If you are from around Auckland and want to have a cup of coffee or a drink somewhere then you are welcome to reach out to me via my email or twitter etc.

In USA I will visit an old friend whom I have not see in about 15 years, when he relocated to Seattle when he got a job at Microsoft. Among others he is taking me to my first live american football game where we are going to see Seattle Seahawks.

I will travel back to Denmark on Monday 28th and arrive back home in the afternoon on the 29th.
And then its back to Camel land and work from the 30th August.

What a schedule! You'll leave a trail of Camel Riders behind wherever you go, I'm sure. Safe travels.
