In my job, I work on scientific instruments that go down a hole to determine if there is oil, gas or water. When repairing these tools, I have been known to get cut or nicked to the point I bleed a little. Because the company I work for is a global one, I have the potential to work on tools from around the world.

This all being said, I have donated my DNA to many tools. These tools have been many places my body has not. But technically I can say I’ve traveled the world via my DNA.

This epiphany came to me because we had to evaluate equipment from an off-shore unit that was on a barge that got stuck on some rocks in Alaska. I’ve worked on the tools that went up there. So even though I’d love to visit there, I really have already been.
