I've finally received my planes tickets for my upcoming trip.. What upcoming trip you ask? (yes I can read your mind even through the internet.) Well in 3 weeks I'll be in the Canaries Island for a astrophysics conference. It's a 3 days conference but because of weird plane schedule and cheapest air fare I'll have to be there for 5 days! Poor me... on a tropical island with few things to do for 2 full days. Oh well I'm sure no one would trade place with me so I'll have to endure this great peril myself ;-)
That one of the thing I like with astronomy, telescope are in great locations (except he Megantic telescope but with our Megantic space telescope project we will change that.) Conference are almost always held in amazing place and best of all someone else is paying for me(and paying me) to go. That almost paradise ;-) I don't plan on staying a student one minute more then I absolutly need to but you know, some of the perks are great.
