It has been sometime now since I last wrote a blog entry. The reason why that is? Life brings constant changes and we moved back to Germany at the beginning of February. As my postdoctoral term was set to end at the end of January and the opportunity to start my individual scientific career in Rostock was too good to forfeit, we were forced to leave Edmonton and the beautiful province of Alberta behind. That place has become a second home for us and we are still heavy hearted when looking back and sometimes wish we were still in Alberta's Capitol Region.
Our flight back took as through a night filled with aurora between Edmonton and Iceland. It was mesmerizing to see the lights dance one last time. It was a show that essentially was going for a full 6 hrs and yielded aurora to either side of the plane looking south and north, what a way to say good bye. After that we went to Copenhagen and then on to Hamburg, from we had to drive a mother 2 hrs to back home in Rostock.
