Travel day

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.
