Am off to Sweden for a workshop next week. It's a pretty sweet deal...all expenses paid in return for a 40 minute talk. The hosts have promised a good time and I'm sure they will deliver. And I'll be flying on an A380 for the first time too.
The temperatures in Sweden at this time of year might be a bit of a shock though (especially considering I'll be coming from Summer here in Melbourne and then heading back out to Central Australia immediately after my return from Europe).
