I’ve got wings

I can fly! I now have my beginners’ paragliding license, which means I can not only continue to harass people in the 2D plane below us, but I can now enter the third dimension and harass the skies. Pigeons beware!

Off on holiday

That’s right, merely weeks before I intend to submit my PhD thesis, I’m heading off for a nice 10 day holiday. This could be construed in two distinct ways – either my PhD is going extremely well and I can afford to take 10 days off, or extremely badly and it makes no difference if […]

Training has begun

Here I climbed the […]

Off to the Alps

Now that I’ve satisfactorily humiliated myself with a job advert that has probably left the entire academic community questioning my sanity and believing that, in fact, I smoke banana peels for entertainment, I’m heading off to the Swiss Alps to relax for three weeks. By relax I mean attempt to climb as many 4000m peaks […]
