Helgard had a dentist's appointment in the morning. But in order to be able to bring me to the airport she moved it! So after a final breakfast I drove my car for the final time to the airport. I drove like crap.
I managed to not cry. Helgard and Carsten repeated that as long as they were living there, I would always have a place to stay in Tromsø. They are lovely people. And then they left, and I was on my way.
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.
