About a year ago, I did the Ice and Oceans fieldwork. It was quite something to lead that fieldtrip. And immediately afterwards we went underground, in Bwlch-y-Plwm. This year I will also scamper off immediately afterwards, but it will be different. The fieldtrip is soon; we already did Bwlch a Plwm again. It is a straightforward mine but a faff too; two drops, and two pull-throughs. That means a lot of waiting and faffing. But that's OK; we're a nice bunch of people! And once we finally got to the bottom of the second pitch there were all sorts of nooks and crannies to explore. It was fun!
This blog started as a tool to keep my Dutch friends informed on my whereabouts when I moved abroad. It quickly also became an external memory for my own use. It largely failed as a stage for discussions on whatever is worth discussing. And it has become a way of sharing my scientific knowledge with a lay audience. And who knows, it could become even more! And whatever it is you are looking for among all this: welcome.
