2009: a review of my year…

Hmm, I know this is a bit late but given my flying back to the UK for Christmas and then coming into a busy work schedule of just not had time. I thought that I probably should write a few things down though.
So 2009, a good year and can be summed up by three things.
Got engaged. Passed Phd. Moved to Calgary.
Of course much more happened but that’s really the quick summary. Getting engaged was by far the most important thing to happen to me.. and now we are organising an August 2011 wedding since I moved to Calgary (Canada) to take up a postdoctoral position in radio astronomy… this came after I successfully completed my PhD in astrophysics (title of PhD – “From planets to galaxies: the low frequency radio sky”).
Many pictures were taken throughout 2009 and I was involved in many events (many surrounding the International Year of Astronomy). I travelled quite a bit (apart from the obvious moving to Calgary) – I went to Arecibo (Puerto Rico) for an observing trip (great to be in control of the world’s largest telescope) and I took a vacation to Barcelona (a fantastic city).
I don’t have much time to finish this properly right now so I’m hoping to come back to this at some point and add some pictures…
