The past couple of days I spent with several of my current colleagues in a mountain hut in the Bavarian Alps. There will be some notable changes in the composition of our chair group – some influential people are leaving for good positions elsewhere, and there will soon be several new additions to our group.Continue reading “Slippery slopes”
It’s surprising to see how much two months of not blogging does to the established systems, patterns and habits in the blogger. I used to automatically archive things that I spotted in the day to day life. Like, I was creating a mental note with everything worthy of writing. It was something that came moreContinue reading “It’s all gone!”
The last months have been rough for us. In that sense, my little break from blogging came at exactly the right time, albeit for the wrong reasons. Since August, we have had only three weeks of Kindergarten for our boy, and the first two weeks were introductions, so they were only part time. The promisedContinue reading “Or just relax?”
Tell me, did you miss me? After more than one and a half year of daily posting on here I quit posting early September, and I did so quite abruptly. It wasn’t really my plan, and I still had and have plenty of things to write about. However, some people took issue with things IContinue reading “Did you miss me?”
I had several posts in mind for today, but I cannot get my thoughts straight to formulate any of them. I think it’s best to keep this one short. I will probably be back tomorrow.

This was mostly because I knew the batch of baby snakes that hatched around the time I left was waiting for me. I usually feed the babies for theContinue reading “Hungry mouths”
This will be our last night spent on this trip. We had a day of absolutely godawful weather today in Carinthia. When it was dry, we scouted some areas north of the Wörthersee as they seemed to be good snake habitat. They were good snake habitat. They were also excellent hiking habitat. However, within fifteenContinue reading “Last night”
After almost three weeks of living in our campervan it’s about time to return to home. However, why make it a twelve hour drive if you can split it up over a couple of days and spend some time in beautiful places along the way? This morning we drove towards Austria, Carinthia to be precise.Continue reading “Slowly making our way home”
As the shortness of yesterday’s post didn’t seem to affect the number of views or the level of appreciation, I figured I could get away with another short one today. It’s my holiday after all. The golden rule seems to be: as long as there’s a pretty picture, anything goes in blog posts. Textual contentContinue reading “It needs a picture”
That’s it. Not much more to say about today! It’s pretty beautiful here though.
