Snow for the holidays

Standing sentry

Winter has finally arrived, Game of thrones jokes aside, and it seems to have landed on Europe with a solid WHUMP.

Traffic and travel chaos stretch from one side to the other, and I hope the small valley we are heading to in the Italian Alps, at the foot of Grand Paradiso for some winter sports relaxation and a break from the Thesis.

I think by this point it has legitimately earned a capital T. It is 130 pages and counting, with the Introduction in the very last stages of revision, each manuscript between 85% and 95% done, and only a short 5 page discussion remaining. Almost there.. it seems incomprehensible.

A nice short trip to Southern Germany for the holidays was a good break, and now a few days alone in Zurich before German Boy returns and we head off in search of adventure… and… well.. snow.

Snowy happiness






About adventuresunplugged

The world is a really cool place. I moved to Zurich almost three years ago to start my PhD, and have really enjoyed the different opportunites living close to the Swiss alps offered. This blog is about some of my adventures, climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, traveling... life in general! Wow, haven't updated this bad boy in some time! While the above is still true I have gone on to finish the PhD, so that is Dr Unplugged to you. I also have landed a job in Switzerland and will be shortly moving to Geneva. Clearly I have some adventures ahead left to explore with you guys along for company!
