Let's pop down to Zurich next weekend

OK, that's a pretty wanky title, but it's what Jo and I can do for the next few months while living Tubingen, Germany.

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 again.
