It's ok really, just like any job. it's what you make it. I drive in Croydon mainly, which is the most violent town in Britain, with stabbings, murders etc at about one or two fatalities per week, but I've never been threatened or even got into any kind of skirmish. There's other drivers who have scraps weekly. The pay used to be ok, but the hours are long and very unsociable, so if you're a going out of an evening kind of a chap it's not for you. Also it's a relationship killer.
Having said all that I love the job, because I greet everyone who comes onboard and I get to know loads of people. Like I say, it's what you make of it.

Getting to mix in world class concert halls is always a major thrill; Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, La Scala, Lincoln Center, Concertgebouw, Kennedy Center, Berlin Philharmonic, Teatro Colon, Royal Albert Hall, etc.

Many memories indeed, a lot of amazing music made by incredible musicians in wonderful venues. And a lot of seriously fascinating travel as well.

I almost forgot, I paint aswell, but these days I try to keep it to a minimum, so I'm turning down a lot of work...
Seriously? I can only imagine, your very good from that image! Sadly these days I've been disabled where sitting, standing & walking are limited to very short time frames making it very difficult to be able to get into and do what & how I use to work so I'm working on ways around the whole mess so I can maintain some bit of sanity after all the pain meds I ingest daily.
