Highlights 2015
« on: January 28, 2015, 09:09:40 PM »
The usual topic.

For me, only the usual Transylvanian Conference is sure.
There were ideas like travelling to Southern Italy/Greece/Trentino-Kärnten for summer holiday, travelling to Norway, travelling to Vienna or Prague... nothing is sure.
The hiking diary will be up soon, 1 is already completed (a long and mountainous one in Hungary).

BÖFF!

My usual answer: I won't have time and energy for holidays.

You should make it. Seeing new places and not giving a damn for a few days is always good.

Our plans are still in flux.

- Short excursions in the nearby mountains with the kids, one per month at least.
- One full-day bike trip per month in nearby and not so nearby mountains
- Annual family holiday, two weeks during mid-summer - we plan to go to Slovenia this time.
- Bike race at the French-Swiss border with some friends in June.
- WSM in August? :)

Main holidays, in which we'll stay in Hungary:
Spring: 30 March - 8 April
Summer: 11 July - 23 July
Autumn: 3 October - 11 October
Winter: 19 December - 3 January

These periods will include mostly visits at family members and one-day excursions around Budapest. In the summer holiday, we're planning to spend one week in Eger or the Mátra Hills. In the autumn break, we're celebrating a series of birthdays (of me, my son and my father-in-law).


Plans for weekend trips from Stavanger in 2015:
Bergen - chance: 80%
Stockholm - chance: 40%
somewhere in the nearby mountains - chance: 40%


Travels related to work, but including some fun:
Conference and (hopefully) field trip in Krakow, Poland: 22-28 June
Company meeting, also with some geological excursions: one week somewhere in Southern Europe (location not decided yet), in October.

You should eat some beans in Wieliczka Salt Mine (they had a decent & relatively cheap restaurant in 2007). :D

The usual burnout message.

March/April: writing my IP thesis (sigh... it should have been completed earlier, the absolute final deadline is 31st March) + work, work, work... no chance for a longer trip in the spring, not even during Eastern
August: thanks to some new restrictions, we can take off our summer holidays only at the beginning of August. Since we have other plans for the summer, chance of travelling to a foreign country is quite low (~10%; inland trip: 50%) - suffering in the hot and noisy flat instead.
Summer/autumn: buying a house (although we couldn't complete this task in the last two years - even after checking numerous candidates, so I'm not sure if we can do it...)

Job issues:
- any time in the second half of the year: business trip to Serbia (~40% chance)
- if I survive the first two (on-line) rounds of the planned job interviews: one week in München or Hague (probably in the autumn; but I guess I won't be able to qualify in this round)

3 Stunts pipsqueaks at the same place, that can be called a Stunts Meeting! Would Ildi, a.k.a. kahdra take part in some live races?

I think she will play with us, it won't be too difficult to persuade her.
