Bruntsfield Links, Edinburgh 4.2016

Spring has sprung in Edinburgh (finally)! We are coming to the end of the first full week of nice weather this year. Yes, I actually had to bring my sunglasses out of retirement. Of course, now that I’ve started my research project, the majority of my days are spent inside the lab. At least I can enjoy seeing the sun through the windows.

The Bucket List 2016

As a self-described list enthusiast, I enjoy creating lists for all sorts of things. You’ve got the classic to-do lists, packing lists, ‘favourites’ lists – the list of lists is almost endless. Bucket lists are probably my favourite kind. It’s like a big picture to-do list.

Loch Lomond 10.2015

Here’s a picture from the spontaneous road trip I took last autumn with a few friends to beautiful Loch Lomond. Highlights included staying in a ‘hobbit house’ (no joke), the beautiful town of Luss, and the giant wooden gateway sculpture/seat/building at the top of the loch (which I’d usually find a bit weird, but I genuinely really liked this time around). A+ weekend away.
