Only a month or so before my trip to Finland and Sweden. Can't wait. A Finnish colleague (and dear friend) has already promised to take me from the airport to a summer cottage for a few days to relax before my conference. No doubt there will be lots of time spent in the forest picking mushrooms (the edible varieties) and I think I'm even up for a skinny dip in a lake (or two) and maybe a stint in a sauna. After the conference, I'm being flown over to Sweden to be an 'opponent' in a thesis defence. The host has offered to take me to Svensk Tenn in Stockholm so I can get my nordic design fix before going to Gotenberg for the actual defence. Yay!
