It’s been a while since I updated the blog with my latest adventures. I’m happy to announce the blog will be back in action starting next week.
There will be posts about a very Texas Fourth of July, a One-Day Walking Tour of London, and a Cycling Tour of Goa, India plus much more.
While I’m working on the latest updates, feel free to look back at some of the most popular posts on the blog from the last few years:
Pyramiden, Spitsbergen — An abandoned Russian mining town, population: 2.
Grace Cathedral, San Francisco — Classic architecture with a modern message.
Christchurch, New Zealand — Art-rich restoration after a devastating earthquake.
Gliding — Free falling over Central Texas.
Castle Rock, Antarctica — Hiking in one of the most remote places in the world.
Dragons might not actually be real, but there’s still a lot of impressive (and real this time!) new research coming out. I mentioned weather thwarted the work I was scheduled to do in Antarctica this past season. It’s not all that unexpected when it comes to operating in Antarctica, but luckily our group typically manages to beat the odds in order to collect a lot of data.
Although this season was a downer, the science continues back in Texas. About two weeks ago, a member of our team got some pretty substantial press about a recently published paper which I’ll try to describe here. Our work this past season was expected to contribute more observations to allow for a future extension of this study (in addition to lots more information for other science).
Having our own place means throwing more parties, so the Super Bowl this year was an opportunity not to be missed. It was an intense game in the end that was fun to watch, but the highlight at our house was, of course, the snack
Last post, I alluded to some wandering I did while my aunt was visiting Austin. We happened across a beautiful October day and spent it at the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center.
Not my house.
Back in October, my aunt came to visit our new place in Austin. She will forever go down in history as the first person to sign my guest book.
