A more adventurous cycling tour! – pt II

VSS is pretty much the usual blur. Writing this two week’s after the conference, I can’t really remember much, so lets hope that nobody was presenting a major breakthrough. The conference was a success though, as I managed to set up a few potential collaborations with new people. I suspect I’m perhaps a little bit too keen on collaborating with people, but it’s my favourite element of academia so I might as well make the most of it!

Also to be considered a success: I managed to get through the whole conference with no hangovers! I am clearly slowly getting wiser.

I still have some nice cocktails though! (and Mexican food)

My mood was soured one day as I received a job rejection, but the next evening there were cookies.

These will clearly help me reach peek physical fitness before my cycling tour.

So many cookies.

Anyway, I only had three...

So everything is alright again.

Club VSS was its usual monstrous nonsense.

Sadly, the alternative actively was karaoke. Which didn't sound like my cup of tea either.

And onwards, to Ohio! A day and a half to recover from VSS, meet up with a post doc who I met at VSS (the two of us are planning a little joint project), stock up on supplies, pack, before heading to Montreal!

Moz, how come we never picked up something like this for previous trips? I was very tempted to buy it!
