Dubrovnik, Croatia 2016

After staying the night in the funkiest hotel I’ve ever been in (we are talking automatic lights around the bed and bedside tables funky), Dev and I set off from Munich Airport in search of adventure! Only a few hours later we found ourselves basking in the summer sun of beautiful Croatia, land of gatorade-blue water, medieval cities, and plenty of Game of Thrones sets. I can tell you for a fact that the more time I spend here, the more I fall in love with this country.

I took this photo as we walked along the old walls of Dubrovnik. It is definitely worth the ticket price of 120 Kunas (16 euros/18 dollars) for the incredible views of the city and sea. We went in the late afternoon to try and avoid the crowds and extreme heat. It took us a little while to adjust from our time in the mountains. Let’s just say the winter coats were safely at the bottom of our backpacks at this point.

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.
