    Neither have I, not outside the harbour or not on a simple ferry anyway! But when parents are paying this time around I am eager to be a cruise person. ;p

    Some in America, one in Holland, couple in CSIRO (Sydney or Perth) thus far. More to be done in the next couple months at least.

    Oh cruise... how brave of you! I've never been on a cruise before but not sure I am a cruise person haha. you will have to let me know how it is!

    haha ok so I assume not many of them going around then? what unis have you applied to? I hope you get a fancy fellowship!!

    I try to! But the New Caledonia trip is actually a cruise. :B

    PffftHAHAHAHA tenured position now, that's funny. =p No, a post-doc position is what it is called, and I've applied for fellowships too (also postdoc level but a bit fancier/you do your own project with that typically). And idk, if there are jobs at uysd and I can get it then yes, but there's been nothing new posted yet. Other unis/facilities in sydney however.

    Yeah, haha. Perth end of the month for a week, and early next year family trip to ~New Caledonia~ woo

    Jobs in academia. I am not yet finished PhD but applications started for jobs that one can start a year later. It's weird.

    Yes! You should go.. when you aren't too busy travelling everywhere else!

    Oh nice, what kind of jobs? is that more funding or are you finished phd... surely not?! I dont know how all that works haha. Good to hear you can relax a bit though!!

    Yeah, I liked Rotorua. Taupo sounds nice!

    Very busy recently - after the paper submission had a lot of job applications to fire off with various project proposals required last week, and that's been a drain on time and energy. :< Got some breathing space now though!

    Yes! Rotorua did stink haha but it was pretty cool!! Taupo was so beautiful, you could see across this giant lake to snow capped mountains - very cool!

    Hows life?

    Most of a week - was for another conference. Had an afternoon off so went with a bunch of friends to Bruny Island and ate delicious cheese and oysters. =) Good fun.

    What about yourself - any trips or adventures? And you mentioned you might move to the UK? :o
