OK, that's a pretty wanky title, but it's what Jo and I can do
for the next few months while living Tubingen,
The story goes like this... about 6 months ago Arnd Bergmann suggested doing
an exchange with him after LCA
2008. After thinking about it for all of about half a second, Jo and
I decided to take him up on the offer. So we are spending 2 months in
Tubingen, then a month traveling around Europe, then another month in
Austin, all while Arnd lives in our apartment in Canberra.
We arrived in Germany about two days ago and got settled pretty
quickly. We met our lovely new house mates, Ines and Sebastian, did a
quick tour of Tubingen and then headed into the Boblingen
offices where I'll be working.
I've setup a photo gallery here and
thankfully Jo has started a
blog, so you won't have to put up with me murdering the English
language, just to find out what we are up to.
Jo and I headed to Adelaide for Kristy and Paul's Wedding. It was a
really nice civil service held in the Adelaide hills at the Chain of
Ponds winery. I've put some photos up here.
I've went up to Sydney to do a short 2 day training course. I managed
to catch up with MBP and Steph who are now living in St Lennerds in
North Sydney. Steph suggested that we went to RedOak for dinner which was
excellent. Highly recommended.
Along with Anton, I spent
the majority of May in Austin working with our team over there. I
managed to catch up with most of the crew over there. Todd took us
out water skiing a couple of times on Lake Travis. Went to a Mr Sinus
Show at the Alamo
Draft house downtown where they serve you beer and food while
commentating B-rate movies. Also went to a live music show at
Antone's with BCG. Overall a
good and thoroughly productive trip, although it's great to be home
