I have been in three countries and multiple forms of transport today.

Countries: UK, Germany, Austria (where I am now)
Forms of transport, in order of use:
  • Taxi (30 minutes late + section of motorway shut == overly exciting journey at 4:30 AM)
  • Plane (jet)
  • Terminal shuttlebus
  • Plane (twin prop)
  • Bus
  • Train
  • Taxi

Twelve hours later, I'm sitting in a rather nice hotel in a small, picturesque village in the Tyrol. It was bright and sunny when I arrived and now the temperature has dropped 10 degrees and it's pissing it down. I am shattered, and I have to go to a meeting at 6 PM. Tomorrow, the 10-day Alpbach Space Summer School that I've come here to help with as an engineering tutor begins.

In conclusion, here is a picture of me and Beakle Bear (aka Humuhumu), because I miss her.

Here's hoping you get to enjoy the Tyrol just a bit before the trip home!

Thank you! I think there should be some time at the weekend to explore a bit.

You could star in the sequel to Planes, Trains and Automobiles!

Where did Beakle Bear come from?

Beakle Bear evolved from a combination of Squeaky Beaky and Baby Bear. :P

Yes, I'm glad I don't have to repeat it until next Friday. Especially since it seems to have given me a cold. :/

I've also just realised that it only takes about an hour more for me to get from my home in the UK to my parents' home in the US, which is ridiculous given the difference in total distance between the two journeys.

She looks so much like you in this photo! More than many others. Her expression is wonderful.
