Not quite as exotic just now but work is still seeing me needing to travel quite a lot. All my girls are coping remarkably well with it but it does provide a bit of a strain. Most recently... another trip to London to talk about aircraft (very exciting, a real pilot has been put in a flight simulator to try following instructions generated by some of our software), and lots of travel around Scotland as I'm the academic chair of this year's SICSA PhD Conference
. All good stuff - and plenty of time on trains! - but the tiredness imposed by all the travel means I'm moving ever closer to needing a hammock for my office...
On other work-related matters - any academics or other writers out there really need to look at ALCS
- I tentatively put a few of my papers and book chapters on there and just received a very healthy royalty payment. Definitely worth your while!
A far cry from some of my other travel pics...

|From my hotel room window in London. This is very near King's Cross. In the distance upper right is the Digital Catapult centre, where I attended a Crucible event a couple of years ago. There also appears to be a UFO.|
|Same picture in the daytime. Best part: to the right, there are the towers of the Midland Grant Hotel (better known as the font of St Pancras station)|
